You can get to the release summary and the what's new topic from the main welcome page when you first open the information center. Both links are listed on the Introduction tab that is open by default, under the Getting started section.
And of course, you can find any of these topics by typing in the Search box above the contents navigation.

Deprecated and removed features of IBM Business Process Manager
Go to the deprecated and removed features topic for a list of capabilities from previous releases that have been replaced by new capabilities in IBM Business Process Manager V8.5. Some capabilities can still be used, but they are deprecated and will be removed from future releases. Review this topic to see what capabilities your team can consider transitioning away from while you are using V8.5. That way, you'll be a step ahead: already using the replacement capabilities when the old ones are removed in future releases.
