Release Notes

UiPath.UiAutomation.Activities v2018.4.1

Release Date: 7th December 2018

With Citrix environments being so popular, we are further extending automation capabilities with native support for Citrix XenApps. To benefit from this, the UiAutomation package must be installed, along with the Citrix Remote Runtime. You can read more on this here.

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.UIAutomation.Activities v2018.3

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.
