As a small little side project I was working on a standalone version of the Camunda BPMN 2.0 modeling plugin for Eclipse. The Camunda Modeler standalone offers nice little features to better integrate with the operating system and focuses 100% on process modeling. It is available for Mac, Linux and Windows.

Update (2014-02-05)

The project is now an official part of Camunda BPM. Read the official announcement or check out its home on camunda.org.

Features

Notable features are the nice little desktop icon for the modeler
