Thanks so much to Zainab Al Showely who has been our full-time summer
student. She has made so much progress. We expect a new group of UCOSP 4th
year students from across Canada to start next week.

Release notes for Umple release 1.29.0

This release includes all updates to Umple From July-August 2018,
including:

Improvements to Mixsets (Abdulaziz Algablan's PhD work) including making
them work internal to more umple entities such as state machines and
traits.

Adding a feature for 'queued' methods. Any void method can have its
signature marked as 'queued'. The call will then be put on a queue to be
executed in a second thread, and the calling thread will be able to
continue without delay. This can be useful for enabling secondary
calculations that are not needed immediately, or sending asynchronous
messages where there is a desire not to wait for the response.

The alpha version of the CRUD user interface generator has been made
available after some bug fixing. It is intended that this be completed for
the next major release.

The alpha version of a new Test-Driven Modeling framework (PhD thesis work
of Sultan Eid). This includes a new UmpleTestLangauge abstract language
that is like xUnit except that it is independent of target language. There
is also a compiler for this that generates jUnit, phpUnit etc. It is also
possible to embed tests directly in an Umple model.

Improvements to the user manual, in particular better documenting mixsets,
constraints the distributed feature

Adding testing of generated php from all relevant examples.

Various bugs were fixed.
