Today we’re releasing a new version of the Camunda Modeler. It brings full support for editing Camunda properties via the properties panel and fixes numerous bugs.
With this version of the modeler you are able to maintain all Camunda properties via the properties panel. Some highlights are support for form data, input/output mappings and connectors.
Configure Form Data
Configure form fields to be used with generated task forms. This includes validation and constraints.
Edit Input/Output Mappings
Create and modify input/output mappings for service tasks, call activities and connectors.
Maintain Connector details
Assign a connector as the implementation type to service task like elements. A special connector tab will allow you to specify its id and input/output mappings.
Along with these features we improved the overall look and feel of the properties panel. With this release we ship better tabbing, validation as well as undo/redo improvements and straight forward name editing for all diagram elements.
Scrollable Property Tabs
Tabs in the properties panel can now be scrolled with the mouse wheel. When overflowing a simple scroll indicator allows you to change between tabs, too.
Properties panel resizing did not make it into this Camunda Modeler release. We are going to ship ith with the [next release](https://github.com/camunda/camunda-modeler/milestones/003%20-%20Advanced%20Modeling%20(XML,%20Image,%20Custom%20Tasks)), promised!
Better Name Editing
With the new version of the modeler you can edit every elements name directly in the properties panel. This means less context switching when working on technical details.
Validation and Undo/Redo Improvements
The properties panel should feel more natural when using undo/redo. In addition we added and reworked the validation in the panel.
We got the [next modeler release](https://github.com/camunda/camunda-modeler/milestones/003%20-%20Advanced%20Modeling%20(XML,%20Image,%20Custom%20Tasks)) already in the pipeline. There we are focusing on more general improvements such as image export, XML editing and properties resizing. Stay tuned for more!
