# Upgrade Notes

This is a feature packed release of Phoenix, and with it comes a few changes that we want you to be aware of. If you're upgrading from a previous version, please keep in mind the following:

  1. Some terminology has changed:
    • Jobs are now called Projects
    • The Ordered amount for a product is now called Quantity
    • Line Type Mappings are now Tool Types, with a new UI
    • The Presses panel is now the Devices panel, to accomodate the new Devices functionality in 7.0.
  2. Default bleed is no longer available for a project (née job). Formerly, the default bleed for a job was set in Preferences > Job. In Phoenix 7.0, we introduce the ability to customize default product properties in Preferences > Products > Default Properties, so the default bleed setting now lives there. Any previous default bleed set in preferences will update the default product bleed setting upon upgrade. As a result of this, the <job.bleed> keyword has been removed and is no longer supported.
  3. Phoenix 7.0 introduces automatic bleed splitting, and the default setting is "All Rectangular." This means new jobs will behave differently and automatically split bleed for all rectangular products. This can be configured differently in Preferences > Project > Bleed splitting.
  4. Phoenix 7.0 also introduces different press types. All existing presses from an earlier version will become Sheet-fed Offset presses on upgrade.
  5. The REST API calls for /libraries/presses are now deprecated. These have now been migrated to /libraries/things. In addition, the Press API currently only returns Sheet-fed offset presses.
  6. For any users on the 7.0 Tech Preview, there are a few items to be aware of:
    • Any jobs created in the Tech Preview with tiled products are not supported on upgrade.
    • Any no-print zones created in presses in the Tech Preview will not be pulled in to presses
  7. In jobs saved in previous versions of Phoenix, there is a small possibility that layouts with a manually defined ink order after results were applied from the Populate tool could load with inks in a different order.
  8. Text marks no longer support rich text. Each text mark will only support a single font, style, color, and size, so if multiple style variations are desired, this will require multiple text marks. The only exception to this are the dynamic keywords inks-stacked that resolve to the ink names in their own ink colors stacked on top of each other.
  9. The following characters are now invalid for naming any item in Phoenix: * < > | : ” / ? ` ~ These characters will be maintained if used in an earlier version and upgraded to 7.0, but if the item is changed at all, the character will be replaced by an underscore.

Important note on API changes in Phoenix 7.0

The Phoenix 7.0 release included a major upgrade to the Phoenix REST API functionality. Part of this upgrade is the improvement to Imposition AI, where the Plan tool can be run asynchronously. This allows for stopping and starting Plan at any time, as well as querying live results while Plan is running and being able to sort results in a number of different ways.

This improved functionality changes the way that Plan works in a subtle, but important way. Previously, Plan would run for a specified number of minutes, and return a sorted list of most cost effective plan results, with an ID parameter specifying this sorted order, from most cost effective (ID = 1) to least cost effective. Since Plan is now asynchronous, the ID now specifies the actual ID of the Plan result, just as the Imposition AI tool returns an ID in the UI of Phoenix.

This means that in versions of Phoenix before 7.0, choosing result with ID = 1 meant choosing the most cost effective result. In 7.0 and beyond, the ID can not be relied upon to choose the most cost effective result, as the ID is now disassociated with cost. As a general rule, the IDs returned for any Imposition AI tool are not guaranteed to be sequential, and should only be used as a result identifier.

In 7.0, for any Imposition AI tool, the queried results are sorted by cost, so the first returned result will have the lowest cost. Additionally, the Plan results can optionally be ordered by waste, total time, or layout count with the sorting parameter in the GET /jobs/{projected}/plan/results call.

For any questions on this or any other behavior, please reach out to the Tilia Labs Help Desk.
