In this release, the process diagram view has been enhanced to offer new capabilities for visualizing and managing node and timer information. By default, information about all node and timer instances are displayed in the new side panel. By expanding each instance, users can access extra details like id, start and updated time, and SLA status. For active timer instance, users can also view specific details such as the last and next activation time, as well as the delay and activation time. Apart from displaying information, users are now also able to execute certain operations on each of the nodes and timers, which includes:
Trigger a specific node.
Cancel a node instance.
Retrigger a node instance.
Reschedule a timer instance.
A context menu is available for nodes and timers that allow operations to be executed.
The process diagram viewer has also been enhanced allowing users to easily control the zoom level on the process image. Furthermore, it is also possible for users to interactively select nodes in the diagram image to filter down the nodes panel on the left for a more specific visualization of the node data.
Service task repository (aka work item repository) has been integrated into Business Central. It provides two areas to manage service tasks
Global administration - accessible via settings page with dedicated
Service Task Administration tile
Project level management - accessible via project settings
Global administration allows process administrators to define what service tasks can be used within projects by either enabling or disabling them. Most of service tasks available in repository are disabled by default except those that come with jBPM out of the box e.g. REST, Email, Decision, Business rule.
Administrators can also upload custom service tasks to make them available for projects.
Project level management allows to install given service task into the project. Installation consists of
updating project dependencies (modifies pom.xml of the project)
updating deployment descriptor - registers work item handler for the service task
installs icon and work definition file into project resources (global area)

jbpm work items have been equipped to provide several service tasks to interact with docker
These can be used directly by taking advantage of service task repository integrated into Business Central.
If you are developing your apps using Visual Studio Code you can now install a new jBPM Business Application extension. With this extension and the great tooling support of VSC you can now generate, develop, and launch your jBPM business apps without ever leaving your development environment.
