(I originally posted this message with no subject line. Sorry.)

I am trying to upgrade from ACEDB3 to ACEDB4.1, but when I start
ACEDB4.1, I get errors regarding my models. These models worked
in ACEDB3. The errors seem to fall into 3 classes:

###########################################################################

1) Model error: non-tag ?Journal in column in model ?Paper

//------------------------------------------------------------------

Journal does, in fact appear as a tag in tags.wrm.

          Vector ?Vector
                 Restriction_Site Text Text
          Host_Strain ?Bacterial_Stock

Some class 3 errors are in models that are unchanged from the
models.wrm as distributed with ACEDB3.

Has model syntax changed, or is ACEDB4.1 just more fastidious at
detecting errors? 

Also, are there other things I need to know when upgrading from 
3.0 to 4.1? Has anyone written any documentation on upgrading?
