Questions about relative paths, database version, MSProTools db_reloc
I have a number of questions around transfering mobilesheets.db between Android and Win10 devices.

1.) I understood that file storage in MSP's database has been changed from absolute paths to paths relative to the MSP folder so that copying mobilesheets.db from an Android device to a Win10 device should work (assuming all files are stored in the same subfolders of the MSP directory). In the latest versions I still see absolute paths. Is any action required to switch my library to use relative paths? Or are relative paths still an open topic?

2.) I experimented with Sciurius' MSProTools - db_reloc to convert the paths in my mobilesheets.db from Android paths to Windows paths, so that a converted Android database should work on Win10. When I run my script, db_reloc reports
"Database version 47 does not match API version 40, proceeding anyway at d:\CmdTools\MSProTools\script\get_meta.pl line 63."
db_reloc runs successfully, the results are promising. Both MSP and db_reloc are the latest versions. Any need to change something? "database version 47" and "API version 40" refer to MSP, correct?

3.) Not only db_reloc, also MSPs synchronization and backup/restore seem to require compatible mobilesheets.db versions. Where can I find the database version in mobilesheets.db? Wouldn't it be useful to display the version of mobilesheets.db in MSP, e.g. in Settings - About
