2. Workflows now support multiple triggers.
3. Added tabs to the Workflow Edit page for "Stats" and "Test Center". This should make it easier and more consistent to navigate between the various pages for a workflow.
4. Inline Test Results! An amazing new feature to view your tokens in realtime as you edit them, and catch Twig syntax errors instantly.
How does it work? Simply go to the Test Center in your workflow and select an object. Then, when you go back to edit your workflow actions you can see your token results in realtime.
