    • Release Notes Summary:
      The 'empty' function now accepts Sensitive data types, which is useful if you need to test if a Sensitive variable is not nil and non-empty, such as in an ERB template.

      Description

      Desired Behavior:

      Function empty() should accept a Parameter of Datatype Sensitive to test, if a Sensitive[String] is empty or not.

      Actual Behavior:

      Function empty() does not accept a Parameter of Datatype Sensitive - in particular of Datatype Sensitive[String].

      Motivation:
      Concearning Sensitive an EPP-File has the great Advantage over an ERB-File, that you easily can throw in Variables of Type Sensitive, and "it just works". This Advantage is ruined in the Moment, in which you have to test a String for Emptyness in your EPP, because...

      if $mystring.empty { ... }
      

      ... crashes with Sensitive.
