We are happy to announce the new release of the camunda Modeler. This version adds the ability to extend the modeler with custom tasks. Furthermore it adds editing support for form fields that were recently re-introduced into the camunda BPM platform. Last but not least, it improves the handling of subprocesses.
Custom Task Plugins
Custom task plugins give you the ability to contribute self-made tasks to the camunda modeler.A custom task is a task that may be reused across all of your diagrams. It can ship with a predefined configuration, can have a customized look and feel and integrates into the palette as well as the properties panel.
Check out our custom task example that show cases what is possible with custom tasks. Head over to the how to section if you want to build your own custom tasks right away.
Form Field Editing
You are now able to edit form fields for via the property panel. Check out Daniels introduction on generated forms to get more context on the topic.
For everyone modeling subprocesses out there, there is good news. You may now safely expand and collapse subprocesses. Internal layout of children will be retained. Import and export, work, too.
We fixed a number of bugs, too, including the sudden popup of error markers on BPMN 2.0 diagrams.
