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.
Today is a great day for the Camunda Spring Boot starter extension: after three month of hard (but mostly fun) work, we are proud to announce the release of 2.0.0.
We decided to switch to a new major version, because a lot of things changed:
- new groupId:
org.camunda.bpm.extension.springbootand a new maven module structure
- switch to Java 8
- switch to Spring Boot 1.4.2
- switch to Camunda BPM 7.6.0
Besides those internal enhancements, we worked on stability, convenience and support of the enterprise edition.
