The following does not seem to work (version 8024):

autoactivate on
[-> Alice : request()

I would expect the exact same activation behaviour on the life line Alice as if I wrote:

autoactivate on
Bob -> Alice : request()

Is this intentional or a problem?

Hi,

It's a bug.

We've quickly fixed it in last beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar so

@startuml
autoactivate on
[-> Alice : request()
[<-- Alice : ok
@enduml

is working fine now. However, we are pretty sure that some similar issues involving [-> and ->] are still present, so do not hesitate to post a message here with examples of non working diagrams.

Thanks again for the report!
