Changes

All changes in the 2014.2.1 release is related to the Barium Live BPMN Modeler 2.0.


1. The default direction of data associations, when adding a data object to a task, has changed. Instead of the arrow pointing from the form to the task it now does the opposite, pointing from the task to the form. The reason for this is that it is much more common to model processes that have arrows pointing from tasks since this allows people to edit the form. We wanted to save unnecessary clicks and make it faster to model processes and create process apps nut it is of course possible to change the direction of the arrow by double-clicking on the line and changing the direction. 



2. We have implemented the same license permissions as we have for the Barium BPMN Modeler 1.0. You cannot deploy a process model to become a process application unless your account has the license level BUILD.




Improvements

All improvements in the 2014.2.1 release is related to the Barium Live BPMN Modeler 2.0.

1. Improved design and layout of the Asset Browser.



2. Improved presentation of process metadata when viewing a process so that not all information about the process is automatically shown, only the most essential with a button that can toggle the detailed metadata.

3. Improved process viewer when looking at the process model from a Task so that process metadata is hidden when performing a task. It is possible to click on the button Open Process Model to access metadata information if needed.

4. Added an improved message if you have been logged out of Barium Live due to inactivity when modeling processes so that it is clear that a simple reload is all it takes to log on again and continue modeling.

5. We improved the dialog informing that the process model must have a name to be able to be deployed if it is missing one.



6. Improved navigation for Barium Live on a tablet.
