We’re excited to announce the release of Camunda Cloud 1.2.0-alpha1.

What to Expect

Camunda Cloud 1.2.0-alpha1 is the first alpha release for our next stable minor release in October. The alpha includes bug fixes, and the preparations for the major features of the next 1.2.0 release. 

One of the standout features of 1.2.0 allows Zeebe to build state on followers. At the moment, only the leader of a partition can build the state and then replicate it periodically to all followers. With the next minor release, followers will be able to build the state themself, which should decrease fail-over times and reduce the workload of leader partitions. You can read more technical details of this in the enhancement proposal.

In Operate we are further improving the call activity support, which we introduced in Operate 1.1.0. As a next step, we plan to propagate the incident state of child instances to parent instances to allow users to easily identify stuck instances.

In the Tasklist project we extended and stabilized the Tasklist API, to enable users to build their own human workflow solution or integrate the API in their existing projects.

Now, a new home page is available in Camunda Cloud Console, which lets you easily navigate to the different services and provides an entrypoint to the documentation.

Lastly, we have released Camunda Optimize 3.6.0-alpha1, and it’s available via our alpha channel in Camunda Cloud. Feel free to try it out and give feedback to our teams about the Optimize beta. As a next step, we will further harden Optimize to ensure it’s generally available in the short term.

How to Get It

You can make use of Zeebe, Operate and Tasklist 1.2.0-alpha1 directly in Camunda Cloud by selecting the “alpha” channel when creating a new cluster. For more information visit the Camunda Cloud docs.

The releases for Zeebe Engine, Operate, and Tasklist have also been published on GitHub for your access. As this is an alpha release, we don’t offer updates from other versions or to later versions of the software.
