Many of our clients are asking for workflow and because it is deprecated I just wonder from Episerver if we are getting any kind of workflow engine soon?
From what I know, Episerver is heavily working on this. I am not sure if there is any release date put to it, but it should be in place soon at least as a Beta.
This seems great. But as I said client are really suffering and I hope Epi provides a deadline and some high-level architecture of new workflow.
Content Approval is what we have at the moment. It's out of beta in 10.8.0 and supports roles/groups in 10.10.0: https://world.episerver.com/blogs/john-philip-johansson/dates/2016/11/introducing-content-approvals-beta/
Whatever we will do will probably revolve around that feature. Probably more in the direction that a developer can create more complicated workflows. If you take a look at the API for Content Approval and explain more what you'd like to see we can take that into consideration, but there are no promises or dates. :)
