Activiti 5.18.0 released

Today we have released Activiti 5.18.0! We are really happy to provide the new bulk insert and other improvements to the Activiti Engine starting from today. 

This release took a bit longer than expected because we have been working on Activiti 6 in parallel. We announced Activiti 6 on our well attended Paris community event. We expect to ship an alpha release of Activiti 6 at the end of August.

You can also expect a new release of our Activiti Designer in the next couple of weeks. 

So what's new in Activiti 5.18.0?



  • We enhanced the OR query support, it's now possible to use multiple OR parts in one query
  • Improvements to the async executor we introduced in Activiti 5.17.0. There were some cases that could result in deadlock exceptions and that's resolved in this version.
  • Improvements to the Activiti Modeler with terminate end events, cancel event and transaction support, and more intermediate catch and throw event support. Also, improvements to interrupting and non-interrupting solid and dashed line for boundary events.
  • Upgraded Spring dependency version to 4.1. Activiti is still working with Spring 4.0.x and 3.x as well.
  • Various bug fixes
For more information you can read the release notes.

Enjoy the release.
