The image of a process should always be updated or created when ever the process is saved in designer.
I totally agree with you.
It's incredible that such feature has been disappeared from JBPM 3.x to 5.x.
Tihomir can you check if the build on Sourceforge for the 2.4.0 Final is really the latest? I tried the new implemented feature only on the 2.5.0-SNAPSHOT downloaded from hudson and it doesn't work on the 2.4.0.Final.
IIRC we talked about this change after the 2.4.0 release, no? https://github.com/droolsjbpm/jbpm-designer/tree/2.4.x does not contain the commit for this. We can either do a quick 2.4.1 or if you are OK with building from master that's fine as well. Let me know.
Maybe it's better a 2.4.1 release. Just to clarify the release notes http://surdilovic.wordpress.com/2012/11/27/jbpm-designer-2-4-0-final-released/ that clearly indicates a bugfix that's not present (Automatic creation of the process image in designer) in the 2.4.0.Final version.
Sounds good. We will do 2.4.1 asap.
As far I see there no 2.4.1 version to include this feature. Is the latest designer version compatible with Guvnor 5.5.0 Final? Is there a compatibility matrix between Drools and the designer?
