I installed the new version of Mplus and get different results with respect to observations used with the same code. Version 5 eliminated only those observations with missing both predictor and outcome vars. Version 7 eliminates all observations missing predictor vars, outcome vars or both. I would like to include observations missing predictor but not outcome and missing outcome but not predictor and perform FIML. How can I do this in Version 7?
(In both I specified TYPE=MISSING and both tell me this is not necessary.)

Our web site's Version History specifies when and why we made this change. To include subjects with missing on predictors you can mention the variances of these predictors in the model.
