URCap (built with SDK 1.0/1.1) usable with new version 1.2?


thank you very much for the new features of the URCap SDK 1.2 - they seem to be quite useful!

I was wondering: Will URCaps, that have been build with the URCap SDK 1.0 or 1.1, still be executable with the new PolyScope 3.5 and URCap SDK 1.2?
First tests suggest that this should be no problem.

Porting older URCaps from the URCap SDK 1.0/1.1 to the new version 1.2 seems to require some manual changes with the pom.xml file of the URCap, but should be possible.

Thank you very much,

The URCaps made with SDK 1.0 or 1.1 should be compatible to run with PolyScope 3.5
There have not been changes to the SDK 1.2, that break compatibility.

However it should be noted that some methods have been deprecated.
E.g. the Position.getX() have been deprecated (still works, if already done), but the new getX() method now requires you to specify in which unit you want the X parameter in.
