Vector append() and assign() question

I was creating a dropdown in the config and saw lately Vector append() & assign() support JS arrays directly ( :+1:). The help states

In JScript you can pass a standard array to this method to copy the array into a Vector.

but both throw an exception for me:

    var v = DOpus.create.vector();
    var a = [ 'Foo', 'Bar' ];          v.append(a); // exception
    var b = new Array( 'Foo', 'Bar' ); v.append(b); // exception
    v.append([ 'Foo', 'Bar' ]);                     // exception
    v.append(new Array( 'Foo', 'Bar' ));            // exception
    v = DOpus.create.vector([ 'Foo', 'Bar' ]);      // no exception
    DOpus.output('cnt: ' + v.count); // ...but returns 0
    DOpus.output('cnt: ' + v.count); // works perfectly fine

Am I missing something very obvious or misinterpreting the docs?

Sorry about that, and thanks for reporting it!

It has been fixed for the next beta.

Thanks Leo, you guys rock!

Both methods work as expected now:

    var _v1 = DOpus.create().vector();
    _v1.assign(['Foo', 'Bar', 'Baz']);
    _v1.insert(0, 2); // default for dropdown
    var _v2 = DOpus.create().vector();
    _v2.push_back(2); // default for dropdown
    _v2.append(['Foo', 'Bar', 'Baz']);
