1. Description

Transaction Journaling: Add 64 bit support for TJ log set files.

2. Previous Release Behavior

Each file in the TJ log set was restricted to a 32 bit signed offset giving a maximum capacity of 2GB per file. As there were up to 16 files defined, this gave a total capacity of 32GB per log set.

3. Current Release Behavior

We now use 64 bit offsets which means you now only need to specify a single file per log set. You can still supply multiple files per logset, which allows for backward compatibility, it just is not necessary anymore.

The file in a TJ log set can grow to any size supported by the Operating System, assuming sufficient disc space of course.
