Why does LV2009 "Read Key (String)" no longer convert "\81" to a single byte?

Highlighted
LabVIEW 2009 "Read Key (String)" calls the sub-VI "Unescape String" which will only convert hex digits 00 thru 1F to a single character. Is this by design or is it an oversight?

Hi Thundt,

 

The Unescape String method was changed in 2009.  Here are the details:

 

Files Written with Config File VIs May Not Be Compatible With Previous Versions

Strings are escaped and unescaped differently in the new Config File VIs.
"\n" was previously escaped to "\0A" but is now escaped to "\10".
"\t" was previously escaped to " \09" but is now escaped to " \t".
"\r" was previously escaped to "\0D" but is now escaped to " \13".
