Yes, these are now fully functional in the just relased 1.1.0 version.

This is not completed yet. I'll be doing the integration with JSHOP2 for
the next release.

I will try to complete the javadocs as much as possible as I go along
and maybe extend the simple tutorial to contain more detailed
explanations. But it is hard for me to provide any other kind of
documentation. I try to add example programs in src/examples to
demonstrate when there is a significant new capability.

There are some known issues with the current beta release which I didn't
have time to document yet. All the major features are working as much as
I tested. There are some unsupported features: applying effects (to be
reayd for next version), supporting different data flow constructs like
ValueFunction (not planning to implement because these are really under
specified in OWL-S 1.1), evaluating all of the SWRL built-in functions
(now only comparison functions are supported, maybe arithmetic
operations will also be supported). There is also a problem with
executing Split constructs which may cause an error if multiple threads
try to modify the KB at the same time. And of course there are possibly
many bugs that effects other parts :)
