What's New in 2.0

Task Builder 2.0

Kinetic Task 2.0 comes packaged with a brand new HTML5 based task builder.  The ​Task Builder 2.0 implements connector rearrangement, which allows connectors to be drag-and-dropped between different task nodes.

Encrypted Task Info Values

Task Handler and Task Tree Pausing

Kinetic Task now implements the pausing of specific task handlers or entire task trees.  Pausing a task handler will prevent that handler from being executed if it is encountered while processing a task tree.  The processing of that tree will wait until resumed (whether manually or via a task handler).  Pausing a task tree will prevent the engine from processing any part of the task tree.  The processing of that tree will wait until resumed (whether manually or via a task handler).

Distributed Task Engines

Kinetic Task 2.0 provides a simple interface for specifying that specific Task Engine instances should process specified task handlers.  This provides the functionality necessary to specify that a single Task Engine instance should be responsible for all long running tasks, or to specify that an internal Task Engine should process certain sensitive handlers while a primary Task Engine should process the remaining handlers.

For information regarding the configuration of this feature, see Configuring Distributed Task Engines.
