Camunda Modeler 1.12.0-alpha-2 Released

We are proud to announce the release of Camunda Modeler version 1.12.0-alpha-2. This alpha release of the Camunda Modeler makes editing DMN decision tables easier and brings us closer to a completely rewritten and feature-complete DMN modeling experience.

Editing Decision Tables made simple

If you’ve never worked with DMN 1.1 before getting the syntax right might be challenging in the beginning. Therefore instead of directly editing cells you can edit them using a context menu that ensures the correct syntax.

Editing made simple

If you’ve been using the Camunda Modeler for a while you might wonder where the button for switching between direct and simple editing went. As of this version of the Camunda Modeler you can use both ways of editing without having to switch back and forth.

Predefined Values

Predefining values is an easy way of adding default values when editing string expressions. This feature is now available in the rewritten DMN modeling.

Editing predefined values

Whenever you edit a string expression you will be able to simply select values that you’ve defined before.

Other Improvements

Besides an improved DMN modeling this alpha release also ships with the latest BPMN modeling. Some of the highlights include

  • improved navigation including native support for gestures with two fingers
  • create and attach boundary event directly from the context pad
  • auto placement of elements as a quick and easy way to model
  • adaptive label positioning that makes sure your labels are not overlapped by other elements
  • improvements in handling malformed XML and BPMN 2.0 XML exported from other tool vendors

You can read more about the improved BPMN modeling here.

  • literal expressions
  • copy rules/inputs/outputs
  • clear rules
  • edit input/output entry expression language
