Start using camunda BPM today!

Although still tagged as alpha, our current releases are already considered stable, especially the process engine itself. There are already customers going live with the current alpha5 - we have no worries - but keep in mind that some things might still be subject to change:
  • History (we expect some database changes)
  • Central User Management (will be added)
  • Cockpit (more features will be added; the plugin API might still change)

Just being the product owner, I will not build any of this stuff myself. The credits go to our team, the contributors and the community.

Great work, great project!
