pre-release 1.7.2pre2

Just released OpenWFE 1.7.2pre2, it contains a bug fix about the embedded engine and ‘cancel items’ : when an embedded participant gets cancelled you have to prepare it to receive a CancelItem (instead of an InFlowWorkItem) instance.
The trigger for that fix was that thread.

The dollar notation has a new variant : ${p:x}, the p stands for ‘property’ or ‘parameter’. With this prefix, the values for key ‘x’ are taken directly from the etc/engine/engine-configuration.xml (parameters) or from the JVM -Dx=y (properties).
It’s useful for fetching configuration information and using it in process definitions.
Still have to write documentation about that ‘dollar p’.

A small mistake : this pre2 version will advertise itself as ‘pre1’, minor issue. Version pre3 will advertise correctly.
