Although still tagged as alpha, our current releases are already considered stable, especially the process engine itself. There are already customers going live with the current alpha5 – we have no worries – but keep in mind that some things might still be subject to change:
  • History (we expect some database changes)
  • Central User Management (will be added)
  • Cockpit (more features will be added; the plugin API might still change)
Just being the product owner, I will not build any of this stuff myself. The credits go to our team, the contributors and the community.
Great work, great project!
