What do you think of Oracle BPM?

We've used 11.1.1.6 in production for SOA/BPM/ADF for over 6 months now, and I'm alot happier with it than any of the previous versions. Struck threads significantly dropped, better functionality, and lots of bug fixes. If you're waiting for the 'perfect' release that's bug free, you may be waiting for some time! For us, this has been a good release.
