  • Standard create and edit entity pages can now be re-used in workflows
  • It is now possible to select the transition destination page in the workflow editor

  • The demo data installation process has been modified to provide pre-populated pre-indexed data right after the system installation (additional re-indexing is no longer necessary)

  • ORM re-indexation speed has also been improved
