Next to minor changes, the new release adds support for consuming Camunda’s external tasks (introduced in Camunda 7.4.0) in the form of a Camel route endpoint. This is another level of technical decoupling and brings a lot of adventages.
I’m happy to announce the first release of the new community extension FEEL-Scala. FEEL is a part of the DMN specification of the OMG and stands for “Friendly Enough Expression Language”. It provides a simple data model and a syntax designed for a wide audience. The new community extension implements a large feature set of FEEL and replaces the default FEEL engine of the Camunda DMN engine.
Camunda 7.7.0-alpha1 is here and it is packed with new features. The highlights are:
- Webapps: drill down in Metrics Charts and general facelift
- Core Engine: drastic reduction of optimistic locking exceptions when using Job Executor
- External Tasks: History API and monitoring in Cockpit
- Fluent BPMN builder API: now generates BPMN diagram elements
- Supported Environments: IBM Websphere 9 and OpenJDK 8
- Security: salts and stronger hashing of user passwords
- 32 Bug Fixes
The complete release notes are available in Jira.
Over the last days, I have worked on integrating Camunda into the latest version of Drupal.
For the record, Drupal is an Open Source CMS powering a large number of the top websites available on the Internet. Therefore it is reasonnable to assume that the combination of Camunda and Drupal is a possible scenario.
