  <h1>Activiti Release Notes</h1>

  <h3>Release Notes - Activiti - Version 5.11</h3>

  <h4>Highlights</h4>
  <ul>
    <li>Added Activiti Modeler to the Activiti Explorer web application</li>
    <li>Removed buggy demo script and replaced with simpler distribution</li>
    <li>Support for doing queries that are not out-of-the-box possible with the query api (called 'native queries')</li>
    <li>Enhanced ability to query for history variable values</li>
    <li>Improved functionality to suspend and activate process definitions and instances</li>
    <li>Improved Activiti QA and added DB2 and MSSQL servers</li>
    <li>Added support for using a service call in aJava delegates (see <a href="http://www.jorambarrez.be/blog/2012/10/25/call-a-service-in-a-service-tas/">here</a> for more details)</li>
    <li>Lots of bug fixes</li>
  </ul>

  <h4>Important upgrade note</h4>
  <p>In 5.11 we introduce a new history table for process variables. There is an optional migration database script
  that you can run to generate historic variables for existing process instances.  This is optional because 
  the engine will just create those records upon update of the variable if they don't exist.  
  </p>
  <p>The files can be found in the database directory of the Activiti distribution
  <code>org/activiti/db/upgrade/optional</code>.
  </p> 
  
  <h4>API Change</h4>
  <p>The functionality of the repositoryService.suspendProcessDefinitionByXXX has been slightly altered.
  Previously, calling this method would stop the execution of jobs related to this process definition.
  Now, calling this method will <b>not</b> do this, but rather make sure a process instance 
  cannot be created from this process definition. We've added a new method with an additional
  parameter 'suspendProcessInstances' which can be used to get the same behavior: when set to 'true',
  all the associated process instances will be suspended. This will avoid process instance continuation,
  including the execution of jobs related to the process instance.</p>
  
  <h4>Bug fixes and various smaller improvements</h4>

  <h3>Release Notes - Activiti - Version 5.7</h3>

  <h4>Highlights</h4>
  <ul>
    <li>A new Activiti Explorer application completely rewritten in Vaadin</li>
    <li>The REST services have been rewritten to Restlet</li>
  </ul>

  <h4>Important</h4>

  <p>
    A couple of add-on applications have spun off from the Activiti download and 
    started life on their own.  Activiti Modeler continues as a Google code project 
    called <a href="http://code.google.com/p/signavio-core-components/">Signavio Core Components</a>.  
    Activiti Cycle now lives on as <a href="http://fox.camunda.com/doc/#cycle">Camunda Fox</a>.
    An evolved version of Activiti KickStart will become part of a new Alfresco cloud case management 
    solution.    
  </p>
  
  <p>
    Activiti Explorer has acquired Activiti Probe for an undisclosed amount :-)  The resulting 
    Activiti Explorer has been restyled and includes more dynamic task management features. 
  </p>
  
  <p>
    The REST services were rewritten with the Restlet framework with backwards compatibility, so the REST interfaces haven't changed. 
    The previous versions of Activiti included a REST services web application that used the Spring Surf and Webscripts framework.
    To implement a new or revised REST service you had to learn these frameworks. With moving to Restlet implementing new or revised REST services has become really simple.
  </p>
    
  <p>
    The demo setup has been limited to H2 database only, as many people struggled with getting
    the demo setup to run on their databases. The demo setup is a quick way to get familiar
    with Activiti and its tools, but it is by no means meant for production purposes.
    A section <i>'Changing the database'</i> has been added to the userguide and is intended for advanced users
    who want to run the Activiti tools on their servers and databases.
  </p>

  <h3>Release Notes - Activiti - Version 5.6</h3>
  <h4>Highlights</h4>
  <ul>
    <li>Added direct <a href="http://bpmn20inaction.blogspot.com/2011/05/supersize-activiti-with-mule-esb-and.html">Mule and Camel integration</a></li>
    <li>Easier way to retrieve businessKey from task listeners</li>
    <li>Improved support for Alfresco processes</li>
    <li>Added support for delegateExpressions in tasklistener</li>
    <li>Added support for BPMN multi instance in the eclipse designer</li>
    <li>Extended length of all user defined text columns to 4000</li>
  </ul>

  <h4>Known upgrade limitation</h4>
  <p>In the DB schema creation scripts, we've enlarged the max size of certain varchar columns from 255 to 4000.
  See <a href="http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/ACT-236">ACT-236</a>.  These schema updates are not part of the 
  automatic upgrade procedure.
  </p>
  
  <p>Max length of following columns has been set to 4000:
  </p>
  
  <ul>
    <li>ACT_RU_JOB.EXCEPTION_MSG_</li>
    <li>ACT_RU_JOB.HANDLER_CFG_</li>
    <li>ACT_RE_PROCDEF.RESOURCE_NAME_</li>
    <li>ACT_RE_PROCDEF.DGRM_RESOURCE_NAME_</li>
    <li>ACT_RU_TASK.DESCRIPTION_</li>
    <li>ACT_RU_VARIABLE.TEXT_</li>
    <li>ACT_RU_VARIABLE.TEXT2_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_TASKINST.DESCRIPTION_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_TASKINST.DELETE_REASON_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_DETAIL.TEXT_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_DETAIL.TEXT2_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_COMMENT.MESSAGE_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_ATTACHMENT.DESCRIPTION_</li>
    <li>ACT_HI_ATTACHMENT.URL_</li>
  </ul>
  
  <p>If you want to perform these changes, you can do that manually.  Check your database capabilities for the
  easiest way on changing the type of columns from varchar(255) to varchar(4000).  As a fall back, 
  for each table affected, you can: 
  </p>
  <ol>
    <li>create a new temporary table</li>
    <li>copy the contents from the original to the temporary table</li>
    <li>delete the original table</li>
    <li>recreate the original table using the new create script with the proper lengths</li>
    <li>copy the contents from the temporary table back to the new original table</li>
    <li>drop the temporary table</li>
  </ol>

  <h3>Release Notes - Activiti - Version 5.4</h3>
    
      <h4>Compatibility note</h4>
      <p>After releasing 5.3, we discovered that
      execution listeners and task listeners and expressions were still in non-public api. Those classes were in subpackages 
      of <code>org.activiti.engine.impl...</code>,  which has <code>impl</code> in it).  
      <code>org.activiti.engine.impl.pvm.delegate.ExecutionListener</code>, 
      <code>org.activiti.engine.impl.pvm.delegate.TaskListener</code> and 
      <code>org.activiti.engine.impl.pvm.el.Expression</code> 
      have been deprecated. From now on, you should use <code>org.activiti.engine.delegate.ExecutionListener</code>,
      <code>org.activiti.engine.delegate.TaskListener</code> and <code>org.activiti.engine.delegate.Expression</code>.
      In the new publicly available API, access to  
      <code>ExecutionListenerExecution.getEventSource()</code> has been removed.  Apart from the deprecation 
      compiler warning, the existing code should run fine.  But consider switching to the new public 
      API interfaces (without .impl. in the package name).
      </p>

  <h3>Release Notes - Activiti - Version 5.1</h3>
  
  <h4>Warning</h4>
  <p>The automatic upgrade does not have enough coverage to have full confidence.
  For more info, see <a href="docs/userguide/index.html#databaseUpgrade">the user guide, section Database upgrade</a>.
  </p>
  
  <h4>Changes</h4>
  <ul>
    <li>In attribute &lt;serviceTask delegateExpression="..."&gt; previously always performed a leave after 
    calling the delegate that was obtained by evaluating the expression.  Which means that it's always an automatic 
    activity.  Now the leave is only performed only when the delegate object implements JavaDelegate.  In case the 
    delegate object implements ActivityBehavior the leave will not be called.  In that case, the ActivityBehavior is 
    responsible for calling leave if it wants to be an automatic activity. 
    </li>
  </ul>

  <h4>Highlights</h4>
  <ul>
    <li>Added Activiti KickStart making the creation of new BPMN process models as easy as 1, 2, 3</li>
    <li>Added automatic upgrade of the DB schema from 5.0 to 5.1</li>
    <li>Added generation of process definition diagram based on DI information</li>
