We also added two new add-ons with this release.

The long awaited “Oasis Workflow Front End Actions” add-on is finally out.
This add-on provides a way to display Workflow Actions on the front end of your website.

Oasis Workflow ACF Compare add-on
If you have been using Oasis Workflow revision feature, I’m sure you must have also used our “Compare With Original” tool. A lot of our clients also useAdvanced Custom Fields plugin to work with custom fields. This add-on adds the capability to compare ACF custom fields between the published article and it’s revision.

Other significant changes added to Oasis Workflow Pro v3.4 are as follows:
- Now that we are using custom capabilities, we have removed all role based settings and those will now be controlled using custom capabilities.
- We added “Make Revision” overlay to prevent users from accidentally updating published version and then realizing they need to first revise and then make changes. The overlay message is configurable.
- Fixed issue with comments showing up twice in email.
Revision Compare will also show the taxonomy compare.
Installing the Update
Oasis Workflow Pro v3.4 can be installed from inside your WordPress admin by going to the Installed Plugins page under your Plugins menu.
We suggest all users update to this release as soon as possible, just as we always recommend users update WordPress and WordPress Plugins when new versions are available.
