Code Breaking Changes

The following NinjaScript changes have taken effect between B3 and B4:

Order signal name "Exit on close" - string renamed to "Exit on session close"
BarsType AddDataPoint() - renamed to AddBar() (for consistency)
BarsType IsTickReplaySupported - renamed to IsRemoveLastBarSupported (note: the logic changed from default TRUE to FALSE)
