Camunda Modeler 1.12.0-alpha-1 Released

We are happy to announce the release of Camunda Modeler version 1.12.0-alpha-1. This release marks the first ever alpha release of the Camunda Modeler. It features a completely rewritten DMN modeling that is blazingly fast and handles big decision tables with ease.

Blazingly fast DMN modeling

The new DMN modeling experience

If you’ve ever worked with a big DMN decision table using the Camunda Modeler you might have noticed that it becomes significantly slower as soon as you have a few hundred rules. In order to improve the performance of DMN modeling, we started to rewrite it from scratch. The result is a new modeling experience that is equally enjoyable with both small and big DMN decision tables. Speaking of performance:

Import time

Using the new DMN modeling you might notice that there are a few things missing. That’s why this is an alpha release.

Things you can do already:

  • edit decision name and ID
  • edit hit policy
  • add/remove rules/inputs/outputs
  • cut/paste rules/inputs/outputs
  • edit input expression/output name
  • edit input/output types
  • edit input/output entries

Things you can’t do yet:

  • drag/drop rules/inputs/outputs
  • copy rules/inputs/outputs
  • clear rules
  • edit input/output values
  • edit input/output entries using a simple mode
  • edit input/output entry expression language
  • add input/output entry descriptions

If you prefer performance over features the new DMN modeling you can already give the new DMN modeling a shot. If you want to use any of the features we haven’t rewritten yet please bear with us, we’re working on it.

Other Improvements

Besides a rewritten DMN modeling this alpha release also ships with new XML parsing that is significantly faster and fixes a few bugs that in the past allowed you to open invalid BPMN, CMMN or DMN.

How to get it
