We are happy to announce the first beta of the Camunda Modeler 3.0.0. This release achieves feature parity with the last stable version and completes our port of the application to an entirely new architecture. Once more it incorporates numerous additional improvements and bug fixes. We encourage you to try it out.
Building on top of our last pre-release, we completed restoring features included in the latest stable release
v2.2.4. This contained file dropping functionality (cf. picture below), unsaved file detection and the keyboard-shortcut overlay.
Download the latest beta and start modeling right away.
Starting with this release, you can disable DMN and CMMN editing to end up in a BPMN-only mode.

Improved File Discovery
Starting with this release, you may hover a diagram tab to inspect the full path to the diagram. No more confusion where to find a diagram on disk!
Align to Origin
Coming out of this release, the modeler prevents the export of negative diagram coordinates by automatically aligning diagrams to the coordinate origin. This change renders the diagram origin cross as well as the Move to Origin action obsolete. Subsequently, both have got removed from all editors.
The new behavior better aligns the tool with the relevant diagram interchange specifications. It results in improved compatibility with other modeling tools, too, as most have trouble dealing with negative diagram coordinates.
On the flip side, this feature is likely to introduce additional noise when merging diagrams using standard text-based DIFF tools. We want to hear your feedback regarding this change. Please share it in our forum.
Update On Supported Environments
We updated our documentation, clarifying the app’s supported environments. Quoting directly from the documentation:
Officially supported on the following operating systems: * Windows 7 / 10 * Mac OS X 10.11 and later * Ubuntu LTS (latest) Reported to work on these operating systems, too: * Ubuntu 12.04 and later * Fedora 21 * Debian 8
As mentioned in the statement above it is reported to run on many other operating systems, especially different variances of Linux, too. We support these alternative environments on a best-effort basis.
