Oracle BPEL: What's up with it?

Nearly 20 years ago there was a new standard for modelling business processes: BPEL (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Process_Execution_Language)
Oracle bought Collaxa and released the Oracle BPEL Process Manager.
In 2009 i wrote some posts over tutorials, which where from collaxa and which were very useful for starting with Oracle BPEL product:

And what is left today?

The product is still listed on Oracle homepage:

And there is a section with some "news":

But the version number is not really somehing new and if you open the white paper you will see:

I think a whitepaper from 2014 is not really something new. 

If you take a look on the BPEL specification at oasis (http://docs.oasis-open.org/wsbpel/2.0/OS/wsbpel-v2.0-OS.html), you can see, that there was no update to the BPEL standard for more than 10 years. 

It is very sad, that this concept of modelling processes in a graphical way was unsuccessful...
