Activiti 5.4 and Other News

Activiti strikes again with the release of 5.4.  They have had a drumbeat of releases since the original GA shipped (and even before, but who’s counting), and they’re at it yet again.

I’m once again humbled by the great information available in the user guide.  It only took a few minutes to download and install Activiti 5.4 – but those interested should bear in mind the installation is really targeted at a developer-persona – you have to run scripts to install etc.  Certainly no worse than many commercial products, and in fact, quite a bit easier than most.

There are a few interesting and useful new features:

  • Improvements to Activiti Cycle round-trip
  • Support for more “case management” functionality – dynamic comments, attachments, dates, etc.
  • Looks like you can scan an IMAP account for tasks (often a useful way to detect process starts or status updates).

In related news, Tijs Rademakers joins the Activiti team at Alfresco.  He’s leading the development of the Eclipse Designer, obviously a key element in the framework. I don’t know Tijs personally but he has a great (and relevant) track record and is working on a book about Activiti.
