Robocorp Lab (4.10.4)

Hotfix release

v4.10.3 highlighted that old environment caches had been corrupted by network outages etc., during environment setups. These environments were now causing failures when restarting the newer version.

If you hit an error on Lab start-up, you can restart Lab.
Robocorp Lab will clean-up old environments and try a fresh start.

Other Fixes

  • Robots using RPA.Desktop.Windows no longer cause environment cache actions
    • Library is generating files during execution that RCC detected for clean-up.
    • Runs for these robots are now faster, and the cache environments will work better with VsCode.
  • Fixed outputs for robots using pandas.
    • Dataframe outputs are now shown correctly in RobotFramework executions in Lab.
  • Fixes to LSP
    • Stability improvements on Windows.

Known issues

  • JupyterLab V3 has a new "Simple Interface Mode" that activates if you resize the editor window to a small enough size.
    • To get back to the standard interface, go to: View -> Deactivate Simple Interface.
    • We are looking into disabling this functionality because it appears to be rarely useful in automation cases.
  • On macOS Big Sur, the auto-update Restart Now closes and updates the Lab correctly but does not automatically restart the application.
  • LSP restarts are still having problems on Linux and macOS.
