Lightroom SDK: Preserved File Name not accessible via the SDK

LR 8.3 introduced the Preserved File Name field but forgot to make it available via the SDK, e.g. 
photo:getFormattedMetadata ("preservedFileName")
Making it available would allow users to search that field using my Any Filter plugin or other plugins.

Hi John,

Thanks for reporting this issue. I have logged a bug for this and we will add it to the SDK.

Thanks,

Lightroom Classic 9.0 was released earlier today and contained a fix for this issue. Please give it a try and confirm it is working for you after updating. Thanks for your patience.

I just confirmed that photo:getFormattedMetadata ("preservedFileName") returns the preserved file name, thanks.
