What do the Dates Mean?

The supplied dates indicate when the API change was made, on the CVS trunk. From this you can generally tell whether the change should be present in a given build or not; for trunk builds, simply whether it was made before or after the change; for builds on a stabilization branch, whether the branch was made before or after the given date. In some cases corresponding API changes have been made both in the trunk and in an in-progress stabilization branch, if they were needed for a bug fix; this ought to be marked in this list.

Added ordering for code template parameters.

Aug 15 '16; API spec. version: 1.43; affected top-level classes: CodeTemplateParameter; made by: markiewb; issues: #181703
The ordering attribute defines the sequence in which placeholders arecompleted. Use 0 for the first element, 1 for the second... Placeholders without ordering information will be placed after the last placeholder with ordering information.
Example of ordering of parameters :
                     // paramC comes first, then paramB, then paramA
                     ${paramA} ${paramB ordering=2} ${paramC ordering=1}
