Bizagi versions (software upgrades)

Overview

Bizagi generates new versions periodically which include important improvements along with great new features.

We strongly recommend that you upgrade your projects to the newest release, so that you can enjoy all the benefits of Bizagi new features, enhancements, major improvements and bug fixes (maintenance).

 

The newest versions for all Bizagi editions are available for download directly at www.bizagi.com.

 

Bizagi.com.Suite

 

You can also get Bizagi Studio prompts about new version releases if your installation settings are configured to check for updates.

 

Bizagi versions

Bizagi versions are identified following this pattern:

[major_version_number].[minor_version_number].[update_number].[build_number]

 

Bizagi considers the following concepts for how version numbers are assigned and incremented.

 

Major versions

In Major versions significant functionality is released, and the metadata undergoes changes in the database structure.

Backwards incompatible functionality may be added. For those cases, migration tools are available, to upgrade from one major version to another.

Version 10.0 and 11.0 are major versions.

 

To upgrade Bizagi to a major version you should assess it as a migration procedure and should consider Bizagi‚Äôs Professional Services guidance.  To get in touch, contact Bizagi Support.

 

Minor versions

In Minor versions, Bizagi includes backwards compatible functionality and in these versions the metadata undergoes changes in the database structure. Minor versions improve usability and performance.

Versions 11.2 or 11.1 are considered Minor versions.

 

To upgrade your Bizagi installation to a Minor version, refer to Upgrading the minor version.

*Note: as an exception, version 11.2 is considered a Major version due to changes in the metadata, that required a change in the structure of the database. When upgrading from 11.0 or 11.1, contact Bizagi Support.

 

Maintenance versions

In Maintenance versions Bizagi includes backwards compatible functionality and improves usability in a backwards-compatible manner.

Versions 11.2.1, 11.2.4 or 11.2.4. R2 are considered Maintenance versions.

To upgrade your Bizagi installation to a Maintenance version, refer to Upgrading the minor version.

 

Fix release packages

A Patch version or Fix release package contains backwards compatible bug fixes. A bug fix is an internal change that fixes incorrect behavior.

Versions 11.2.1.x  or 11.2.2.x are considered Fix release packages

 

Fix release packages are applied in the development environment to validate the correction of the undesired behavior. When approved, it should be applied in Test and then in Production environment. Taking Backups is not needed.

 

Check your version

In the Work Portal, you can check which version of Automation Server you are using by clicking About:

The version should match the major and minor version that you use in your development environment to build your processes:

 

VersionInBAS

 

When you open Bizagi Studio you will see a notice about a new release, whenever a new minor version is available.

To learn the procedure to upgrade your Bizagi project to the latest Bizagi 11.2.5 release, refer to Upgrading the minor version.

 

Otherwise and if you will be performing an upgrade that shifts to a new major version, then you need to assess such upgrade as a migration procedure.
