There are several improvements to the authoring experience of business process flows to bring them more in line with the other experiences in Microsoft Flow.

First, you no longer need to specifically opt-in a Common Data Service (CDS) entity to use it from a business process flow. Since business process flows leverage a separate entity in CDS to store the business process data, there is no longer a reason to limit business process flows to certain entities.

Second, the authoring experience now opens directly in the Microsoft Flow designer, instead of in a separate tab. Finally, the appearance of the business flow designer has been modernized to match the rest of the Microsoft Flow experience.
