<h1><a name="Ritornello-0.7RC1%28December15th%2C2011%29"></a>0.7RC1 (December
15th, 2011) </h1>
<p>This is the very first release candidate for <b>Ritornello</b>, introducing
some relevant new features and fixing a considerable number of bugs.<br/>
See the <a href=";q=Milestone%3DRelease-201112"
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">complete list</a> of issues involved with this

<p>New features are summarized below.</p>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-SupportedDBMS"></a>Supported DBMS</h1>
<p>Ritornello introduces full support to MySQL (InnoDB), thus enriching the set of DBMS
supported by Syncope for internal storage:</p>
	<li>MySQL (&gt;= 5.1)</li>
	<li>PostgreSQL (&gt;= 9.0)</li>
	<li>Oracle 11g</li>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Schedulabletasks"></a>Schedulable tasks</h1>
<p>Execution of tasks can now be scheduled inside Syncope.</p>

<p>Tasks are Java classes extending <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">AbstractJob</a>, allowing custom logic to be
executed at a certain schedule.</p>

<p>Schedule is supported thanks to inclusion of <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Quartz</a>.</p>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Synchronizationfromexternalresources"></a>Synchronization
from external resources</h1>
<p>External resources (see <a href="/confluence/display/SYNCOPE/Connectors+and+resources"
title="Connectors and resources">Connectors and resources</a> for some background
information) can now be queried for modifications, if underlying connector implements </p>
<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-java">sync()</pre>
<p> operation (see <a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">ConnId's website</a> for details).</p>

<p>Such feature allows either to do an initial import of users from a given external
resources and to periodically pull for modifications.</p>

<p>ConnId provides some connector bundles out-of-the-box supporting </p>
<div class="code panel" style="border-width: 1px;"><div class="codeContent panelContent">
<pre class="code-java">sync()</pre>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">LDAP</a>
(only for some server implementations)</li>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">Active Directory (JNDI)</a></li>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">Database</a> (optional)</li>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">CSV directory</a></li>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Userworkflow"></a>User workflow</h1>
<p>Former workflow engine (<a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">OSWorkflow</a>) has been discontinued, so Ritornello moves to one
of reference Open Source implementations in this respect: <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Activiti BPM</a>.</p>

<p>Moreover, the whole approach to user workflow has been completely re-engineered:
see the following for more information.</p>

<h2><a name="Ritornello-Pluggableimplementation"></a>Pluggable implementation</h2>
<p>Syncope now provides a <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">void</a> implementation and an <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Activiti-based</a> implementation of the new
<a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">UserWorkflowAdapter</a> interface.</p>

<p>New implementations can be plugged in by implementing such Java interface or by extending
an <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">abstract Java class</a>.</p>

<h2><a name="Ritornello-Notification"></a>Notification</h2>
<p>Every event occurring during execution of user workflow can be configured to be notified
by e-mail.</p>

<p>Each notification is created by defining who is the notification related to, which
recipients are to be sent, which e-mail template is to be used and so on.</p>

<h2><a name="Ritornello-Approval"></a>Approval</h2>
<p>User workflow can be configured to require an approval from one or more designated
administrators for specific events.<br/>
Administrators will see all pending approvals in the new TODO section of admin console; each
approval can be claimed and then managed.</p>

<p>Approval forms allow rich, configurable input. Activiti-based user workflow empowers
<a href="" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Activiti

<h2><a name="Ritornello-Enduserrequests"></a>End-user requests</h2>
<p>Syncope now allows users to perform self-registration and self-management through
admin console.</p>

<p>Such requests will have to be administered by one of configured administrators.</p>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Passwordpolicies"></a>Password policies</h1>
<p>Password policies can be defined in order to enforce specific constraints on password
definition, thus improving overall security.</p>

<p>Syncope defines a global password policy applying to password for all users present;
specific password policies can be also defined and associated to roles.</p>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Accountpolicies"></a>Account policies</h1>
<p>Account policies can be defined in order to enforce specific constraints on username
definition and account lockout.</p>

<p>Syncope defines a global account policy applying to all users present; specific account
policies can be also defined and associated to roles.</p>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Adminconsoleimprovements"></a>Admin console improvements</h1>
<p>Admin console has been refactored and extended in order to support all new features
above. In addition, some noticeable items can be reported here:</p>
	<li>User workflow XML editing</li>
	<li>Internal database export as XML</li>
	<li>Connectors / Resources reorganization</li>
	<li>Roles section reorganization</li>

<h1><a name="Ritornello-Projectmanagement%28Maven%29improvements"></a>Project
management (Maven) improvements</h1>
<p>From a developer point of view, many enhancements were brought to project management
via Apache Maven:</p>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Selenium</a>
tests for admin console</li>
	<li>External database resource via <a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">H2</a> for propagation tests</li>
	<li>External LDAP resource via <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Apache DS</a> for propagation tests</li>
	<li>External CSV directory for synchronization tests</li>
	<li><a href="" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">JRebel</a>
for faster web applications redeploy</li>
