What to Expect

Camunda Cloud 1.4.0-alpha1 is the first alpha release for our next stable minor release in April. The alpha includes bug fixes and the preparations for the major features of the next 1.4.0 release. 

With the 1.4.0 version, we plan to add DMN support to Camunda Cloud. With 1.4.0-alpha1, we added the first feature to help deploy DMN decisions.

Additionally, it’s possible to enable compression for all internal traffic of a Zeebe cluster with 1.4.0-alpha1. This feature is useful when the network latency between the brokers is very high. For example, there are brokers deployed in different data centers. When latency is high, the network bandwidth is severely reduced. Hence, enabling compression helps to improve the throughput. But please be aware that when there is no latency enabling, this may impact performance. Currently, GZIP and Snappy are supported as compression algorithms. Please review the configuration file on how to enable this feature.

How to Get It

You can access Zeebe, Operate, and Tasklist 1.4.0-alpha1 directly in Camunda Cloud by selecting the alpha channel when creating a new cluster. Visit Camunda Cloud docs for more information. 

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 later versions of the software.
