Conditions with 'a blank value' add new records with 'null' string

In Millau, new rows in models with conditions that set to 'a blank value' have a 'null' string added instead of being null. This then leads to an error if the field data type is not a string.

Here is a demo page that has the same behavior:

<skuidpage unsavedchangeswarning="yes" personalizationmode="server" useviewportmeta="true" showsidebar="true" showheader="true" tabtooverride="Account">
        <model id="Account" limit="100" query="true" createrowifnonefound="false" datasource="salesforce" sobject="Account" type="">
                <field id="Name"/>
                <field id="CreatedDate"/>
                <field id="ParentId"/>
                <field id="Parent.Name"/>
                <condition type="blank" value="null" field="ParentId" fieldtargetobjects="Account" state="" operator="=" enclosevalueinquotes="false"/>
        <pagetitle model="Account" uniqueid="sk-e2bUg-198">

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It appears there's an issue in how we are treating null and blank in our conditions. There is not a target date for getting this issue addressed yet but our devs are aware of it.

Official Response
Thank you for your patience! Skuid has fixed the issue you raised in the new 11.0.3 release which is now available on the Skuid Releases page.

As a reminder, Salesforce does NOT allow reverting back to prior versions of managed packages. Skuid always recommends installing new versions in a non-business critical sandbox environment to test all mission critical functionality before installing into a production environment. We also recommend that you update out of date themes when you upgrade. Please let us know if you continue to encounter any problems with this issue after upgrading.
Thanks again for alerting us of these issues!
