Announcing the Zeebe 0.15.0 Release

Hi everyone,

We’re happy to announce the Zeebe 0.15 release. You can download Zeebe 0.15 from the release page on Github.

Below, I’ve included some excerpts from the release blog post.

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.

Zeebe 0.15 Release Highlights - BPMN Progress

The Message Start Event makes it possible to create a workflow instance based on the receipt of a message. We could modify our typical order process example so that new workflow instances are started whenever an “Order Placed” message is published by an external system and received by Zeebe.

Learn more about the Message Start Event in the documentation.

The Timer Start Event makes it possible to create a workflow instances periodically based on some time characteristic. For example, we might use the Timer Start Event to schedule a backup workflow that runs once every 24 hours.

Learn more about the Timer Start Event in the documentation.

Non-interrupting Boundary Events makes it possible to follow an outgoing sequence flow from an event without cancelling the activity to which the event is attached.

For example, in our order process, we might want to send a customer an update if an order hasn’t shipped within 48 hours and another update every 48 hours after that until the order ships; however, we don’t want to cancel order fulfillment when we send these notifications.

In this case, we can use the Non-interrupting Timer Boundary Event.

Learn more about the Non-interrupting Message Boundary Event and Non-interrupting Timer Boundary Event in the documentation.

These features represent the last of the BPMN work that’s planned before a production-ready Zeebe release in mid-2019.
