con:cern is a workflow engine based on an extended case handling approach. A process is described as a set of activities with pre- and postconditions. An activity is executed when its preconditions are met. It manipulates the process item, thereby creating postconditions. The process flow is determined at run-time.

This release features a reimplementation of the controller based on hibernate. The controller can be deployed as an MBean, as a spring component, standalone or as part of a web application. The modeller has been radically improved. The generator can generate various artifacts, including html documentation and unit test templates.
Along the changes are:
o based on hibernate
o jmx integration
o spring integration
o temporal conditions
o optional activities
o events and listeners
o cycle analyzer
o dynamic attributes
o improved usability (dnd, ..)

Really interesting. An English version of the 3 first documents (which seems to explain core concepts) would be nice.
Improving the documentation and the homepage is (beside ognl integration) the top most item on my todo list.
That's a nice anonuncement, but I can't really understand that first place in the features description is:
"based on hibernate" but not "written on java" or "done by clever people" or "runns everywhere"? I'l looking for the workflow engine currently and beleve me, if con:concern was based on JDO will makes no sence for me (if I really going to use it as workflow engine)
Earlier versions of the controller were based on entity beans and thus required a j2ee environment. con:cern 2.0's only dependency is hibernate.
There is even a graph "modeller". I'm puzzled.
and the following
This one looks interesting. But doucmentation in English and some tutorials will help.
