Date Sat, 14 Jul 2012 10:11:16 GMT

Thinking of it: could you please a deprecated warning at top of 
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OFBIZ/Mini-Language+Guide, mentionning date or
better revision? Also explaining releases 
previous to R12.04 are not affected

>> Ofbiz's home-grown scripting language - Mini-language - is designed to make application
development fast and easy.
>> Recently, Mini-language was completely overhauled: the grammar was updated based
on suggestions from the developer community, 
>> source code validation was added, and the scripting engine was optimized and made
more robust. Those changes result in a 
>> scripting language that is easier to use and performs well.
>> New Mini-language features:
>> 1. Improved grammar (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OFBADMIN/Mini-language+Reference).
>> 2. New looping elements <break> and <continue>.
>> 3. New <trace> element - provides detailed logging of script engine behavior.
>> 4. Script engine source code has been optimized to use less memory and run faster
(40% faster on trunk version).
>> The overhaul has been back-ported to the Release 12 branch.
>> The Mini-language overhaul represents three man-months of work and it was sponsored
by 1Tech Ltd (http://1tech.eu).
