- Rich Text: Ability to add a rich text field (that supports text formatting) to Openbravo
- Process Definition. Configurable after-execution Actions: New capability of the Process Definition process to execute different actions after completion (such as open a new window, display message, etc). It is extensible by modules, being possible them to define new actions.
