Release 10.10.0 – 2022-09-13

Type Changes By
Update Add an option to import Phoenix schedules as a flat set of tasks with separate activity codes, rather than creating a hierarchy of tasks from the activity codes. Note the default is to disable this behavior so existing functionality is unchanged. (Contributed by Christopher Johns) joniles
Update Add a `setProperties` method to reader classes to allow configuration to be supplied via a `Properties` instance rather than having to call setter methods. Properties passed to the `UniversalProjectReader` version of this method will be forwarded to the reader class `UniversalProjectReader` chooses to reader the supplied file. Properties for multiple reader classes can be included in the `Properties` instance, each reader class will ignore irrelevant properties. joniles
Update Added the `get` method to `Task`, `Resource`, `ResourceAssignment` and `ProjectProperties` as a replacement for the `getCurrentValue` method. The new `get` method is paired with the existing `set` method to provide read and write access to attributes of these classes. This change is intended to improve the interfaces to these classes by making them more consistent, and thus easier to understand. joniles
Update Deprecated the `getCurrentValue` method on the `Task`, `Resource`, `ResourceAssignment` and `ProjectProperties` classes. Use the new `get` method instead. joniles
Update Add getter and setter methods for the Resource attributes Cost Center, Budget Cost, Budget Work, Baseline Budget Cost, Baseline Budget Work, Baseline Budget Cost 1-10, and Baseline Budget Work 1-10. joniles
Update Add getter and setter methods for the Task attributes Response Pending, Scheduled Start, Scheduled Finish, Scheduled Duration, Budget Cost, Budget Work, Baseline Budget Cost, Baseline Budget Work, Baseline Budget Cost 1-10, and Baseline Budget Work 1-10. joniles
Update Added support for the Resource Cost Centre attribute for MSPDI files. joniles
Update Move MPP file-specific functionality for determining baseline values from the Task class into the MPP reader class. joniles
Update Improve handling of the TaskMode attribute. joniles
Update Don't set a Task's Critical attribute unless we have valid slack values. joniles
Update Ensure `ResourceAssignment` calculated fields are returned correctly when using the `getCurrentValue` method. joniles
Update Ensure `ProjectProperties` calculated fields are returned correctly when using the `getCurrentValue` method. joniles
Update Updated to use jsoup 1.15.3 joniles

Update Add support for reading task calenadrs from Phoenix files (Contributed by Rohit Sinha). joniles
Update Improve reliability of ProjectCleanUtility when using the replacement strategy. joniles

Release 10.9.0 – 2022-08-23

Type Changes By
Update Added the `ResourceAssignment.getEffectiveRate` method to allow the cost rate effective on a given date for a resource assignment to be calculated. For P6 schedules this will take account of the cost rate configuration included as part of the resource assignment. joniles
Update For P6 schedules, the `ResourceAssignment.getCostRateTable` method now takes in account any cost rate configuration details from the resource assignment when determining which table to return. joniles
Update A resource's Standard Rate, Overtime Rate and Cost per Use are now all derived from the resource's cost rate table, and not stored as attributes of the resource itself. joniles
Update The resource methods `setStandardRate`, `setOvertimeRate`, and `setCostPerUse` have been deprecated. These attributes can now only be set or updated by modifying the resource's cost rate table. joniles
Update When writing MPX files, only include attributes which have a non-empty, non-default value in at least one task or resource. joniles
Update When writing MPX files, ensure attributes which have calculated values are used. joniles
Update Add support for reading a resource assignment's rate type from P6 schedules. The rate type is accessed via the `ResourceAssignment.getRateIndex` method. The value returned by this method can be used to select the required rate using the `CostRateTableEntry,getRate` method. joniles
Update Add support for writing a resource assignment's rate type to PMXML files. joniles
Update Add support for reading a resource assignment's role from P6 schedules. The role is accessed via the `ResourceAssignment.getRole` and `ResourceAssignment.setRole` methods. joniles
Update Add support for writing a resource assignment's role to PMXML files. joniles
Update Add support for reading a resource assignment's override rate (Price / Unit) from P6 schedules. The rate is accessed via the `ResourceAssignment.getOverrideRate` and `ResourceAssignment.setOverrideRate` methods. joniles
Update Add support for writing a resource assignment's override rate (Price / Unit) to PMXML files. joniles
Update Add support for reading a resource assignment's rate source from P6 schedules. The rate source is accessed via the `ResourceAssignment.getRateSource` and `ResourceAssignment.setRateSource` methods. joniles
Update Add support for writing a resource assignment's rate source to PMXML files. joniles

Release 10.8.0 – 2022-08-17

Type Changes By
Update When reading P6 schedules, all five cost rates for a resource are now available via the `CostRateTableEntry.getRate` method. joniles
Update All five rates from each cost rate table entry can now be written to PMXML files. joniles
Update When reading files written by Microsoft Project, resource rate values now use the same units as seen by the end user rather than defaulting to hours as was the case previously. (For example, if the user sees $8/day in the source application, you will receive a Rate instance of $8/day rather than $1/hr). joniles
Update The values for a resource's standard rate, overtime rate, and cost per use attributes are now derived from the cost rate table. The values stored on the resource itself are only used if a cost rate table for the resource is not present. joniles
Update The Resource methods `getStandardRateUnits` and `getOvertimeRateUnits` are deprecated. Use the `getStandardRate` and `getOvertimeRate` methods to retrieve a `Rate` instance which will include the units for these rates. joniles
Update The Resource methods `setStandardRateUnits` and `setOvertimeRateUnits` are deprecated. Supply `Rate` instances to the `setStandardRate` and `setOvertimeRate` methods with the required units instead. joniles
Update The CostRateTableEntry methods `getStandardRateUnits` and `getOvertimeRateUnits` are deprecated. Use the `getStandardRate` and `getOvertimeRate` methods to retrieve a `Rate` instance which will include the units for these rates. joniles

Update Introduced a separator into rate values when written to a JSON file to make it clear that the value is a rate not a duration (for example: 5.00h is now 5.00/h). joniles
Update When writing an enum value of a JSON file, ensure we write the original enum name rather than the value return by toString. This provides more meaningful output (Potentially breaking change if you use the Ruby gem or consume the JSON output directly. Affected attributes are project properties: currency symbol position, time format, date format, bar text date format, schedule from, mpx file version; resource attribute: type). joniles
