We thank everyone who helped out!
The query capabilities of the engine have been extended significantly to support searching for process instances or tasks in combination with process instance or task data to almost any complexity (including complex constraints) in a very efficient manner. This is available through both Java and remote APIs. Maciej blogged about this already, see:
Others improvements include:
– improved auditing for task data (so it can be queried more easily)
– pluggable notifications for task deadlines
The entire workbench was updated with a new look and feel (based on Bootstrap3 and PatternFly), making it look cleaner, we hope you like it !
Translations for Russian and Traditional Chinese were also added.
Other improvements include:
– duplicate version detection for projects
– ability to disable automatic building of projects
User and group management UI
You can now manage your users and groups inside the workbench using new perspective to manage users and groups (and assign users to groups). It is based on a pluggable implementation to support plugging in different kinds of authentication security domains, configurable in the application server.
New execution server management UI
The execution server UI (to create and manage deployments to one or multiple kie-server instances) has been redesigned.
The task list can also visualize task data, configurable as additional columns in the task table (similar to how this was provided for process instances in the 6.3 release).
Our web-based process designer includes a new ‘Process Documentation’ panel that gives an overview of the most important information of each of the nodes in the process (details that aren’t typically visible in the diagram) and can be printed (to paper or pdf) for documentation purposes.
New process and task dashboards included in the workbench, showing all your important runtime information.
