Today we’re releasing a new version of the Camunda Modeler, with it we’ve added Data Stores, Compensation, Job priorities and retry time cycle configuration, a Hand tool for BPMN and dragging columns and rows in DMN.

New Features

For the past weeks we have been working hard on closing down our coverage of the BPMN standard, so we are proud to announce that it is now possible to model Data Stores and Compensation (boundary events and activities).

Time to compensate!

We also continued to work on giving more control over property configuration, therefore it’s now possible to configure job priorities and job retry time cycle through our properties panel.

Set those priorities straight!

Usability Improvements

We’ve also added new interaction features to BPMN and DMN. Now when you’re modeling a big, complex BPMN diagram you no longer have to zoom out and grab the canvas to move around it, you can just use the new Hand tool.

Grabbing the canvas has never been so easy!

We also didn’t forget about improving DMN, so we’ve added the possibility to reorganize columns and rows via drag and drop.

You can check the blog posts of our toolkits bpmn-js, properties-panel-js and dmn-js to learn more about what else was implemented and the bugs that were fixed.

What’s next

On the next release you can expect the addition of a XML Tab which allows XML live editing, exporting diagrams as SVG or PNG and more control over bpmn properties configuration.
