Release Notes

UiPath.System.Activities v19.5.0

Release Date: 21st May 2019

New Features and Improvements

The Invoke VBScript activity has been created with the purpose of adding VBScript to the list of the languages you can directly use into your processes.

The ItemInformationCollection property has been added to the Add Queue Item activity, enabling you to import an entire dictionary as information for queue items.

The Invoke Workflow File activity now has the ability to import arguments, as well as open the workflow that it is invoking, directly from two new buttons in the body of the activity.

UiPath.System.Activities v19.4.0

Release Date: 25th April 2019

New Features and Improvements

Our goal is to simplify the way you interact with Orchestrator, so we've implemented the possibility of adding multiple queue items into a new activity, Bulk Add Queue Items.

Optimising the way queue items are processed, the new Wait Queue Item activity can notify Orchestrator it is ready to receive a queue item, and then wait for Orchestrator to add an item to that queue, eliminating the need for multiple retries.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue which caused the Get Transaction Item activity to return an error at runtime.
  • The DeferDate and DueDate properties were not logged in the Output panel at runtime.

UiPath.System.Activities v19.3.0

Release Date: 20th February 2019

New Features and Improvements

The Reference and FilterStrategy properties have been added to the Get Transaction Item activity, enabling you to filter the Transaction Item you want to retrieve by its Reference.

With simplification in mind, we have removed the Multiline and Singleline check boxes from the Regex Builder Wizard. No worries, as this does not cause a breaking change, because the Singleline and Multiline options are still available in the RegexOptions property field.

Breaking Changes

Due to some internal dependencies being updated, starting with this version, the minimum required version of Studio for using this package has changed to v2018.4.4 or v2019.2 or above.

UiPath.System.Activities v19.2.0

Release Date: 18th February 2019

New Features and Improvements

We have developed a RegEx Builder wizard which gives you the ability to harness the power of Regular Expressions with a simple and easy to use UI. This wizard can be accessed from the body of the IsMatch, Matches, and Replace activities.

The Orchestrator HTTP Request activity has been improved, and is now able to retrieve the headers of the requests it performs.

Bug Fixes

  • When importing arguments in the Invoke Workflow File activity, the names of the values were imported but the values were left empty.

UiPath.System.Activities v18.4.2

Release Date: 10th January 2019

This new year brings two more languages in the entire UiPath Platform - French and Russian. Since we layed down the foundations of localization in our previous release, we are continuing our efforts in bringing you a more immersive experience and lowering the language barrier bit by bit.

UiPath.System.Activities v18.4.1

Release Date: 7th December 2018

To facilitate identifying which step the Robot is performing at any given time, we have created the Report Status activity, which enables you to create a custom status message that is displayed in the Robot Tray at any point in the execution of a workflow.

Also, dark times ahead, the Dark Theme is now available, in its beta version, on all of the activities and wizards in this package.

UiPath.System.Activities v18.3

Release Date: 22nd October 2018

The Core Activities Package is now split into two distinct packs: UIAutomation and System. The first contains all the activities that mimic human interaction, such as Click or Type Into while the latter sums up all the blocks required for building an automation, from invoking another workflow to logging a custom message in Orchestrator.

This change was made so that both in present and future versions, you can reference any version of the UIAutomation and System packages as dependencies for your projects, completely independent of Studio. This is a step forward for being able to update UiPath Platform components without worrying about how they affect your automations.

UiPath.Core.Activities v2018.2

Release Date: 22nd May 2018

We've added a new Continue activity to the Core pack. It enables you to streamline conditions inside a For Each loop, without nesting If activities, by skipping iterations.

Four new activities have been created for the enhanced manipulation of DataTable variables:

  • Lookup Data Table - Modeled after the Excel VLOOKUP function, it searches for relative cell values in a data table.
  • Filter Data Table - Enables you to select filtering conditions for a data table with the help of a wonderful wizard.
  • Sort Data Table - Sorts a data table in ascending or descending order based on the values in an indicated column.
  • Remove Duplicate Rows - Removes the duplicate rows from a specified `DataTable variable.
