Bug Fixes

This release contains many bug fixes, here’s the full list:

  • The critical bug related to thread management in Camel was fixed.

  • It is possible to use 2 scripts that have the same name from 2 different apps without conflict. Therefore, whenever you want to include a class coming from a script in a different app, you should prefix with the app key, for example @Include myapp.MyScript.

  • Save button works on non-main scripts.

  • The console is displayed when an error occurs in a script.

  • Regression on smart document display is fixed.

  • You can rename a script resource in the UI.
