Release candidates for K2 blackpearl 4.5, K2 blackpoint 4.5 and K2 connect 4.5 are available to current K2 customers and partners through the K2 Partner and Customer Portal.
 
All three K2 4.5 software products are enhanced with significant new features and capabilities that focus on simplicity, performance and stability.
 
K2 4.5 is the fifth update on the fourth major version of the K2 workflow and business process management (BPM) platform.
 
Both K2 blackpearl 4.5 and K2 blackpoint 4.5 feature a new Web-based K2 Designer for SharePoint and Office-like K2 Studio designer for faster and more intuitive application design. K2 blackpearl’s other application designer, K2 Designer for Visual Studio now supports Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

Other new or updated platform highlights:
  • K2 Inline Functions allow users to build complex logic and calculations with simple drag-and-drop tools.
  • K2 View Flow is improved to give users a graphical, real-time view into the status of any step in the process.
  • The K2 ADO.NET Data Provider, K2 SmartObjects and runtime components have been enhanced, so complexity is reduced and developers can build more sophisticated .NET applications that make use of data across systems and organizations.
  • K2 Process Portals are SharePoint sites that provide a one-stop location for access to information and management of processes.
