You have learned to love the powerful Kogito codegen capabilities. You just drop your asset to your source directory (or you feed it to the powerful operator) and you get a fully-functional REST endpoint for free.
However, from day one we understood that automated code-generation would bring you only to a certain point. That is why we wanted to provide a great programmatic API. Yet, so far we were not confident enough to open up the internal API that we were using as our code generation target. The reason is that we wanted to get it right first.
We are now happy to release a first version of our new public API in incubation state starting from version 1.13!
Some weeks ago, GitHub released github.dev which allows you to open any repository in VS Code directly from your browser just pressing . (dot key) on it.

Scorecards We have a new Scorecard editor. It needs to load PMML XML and save it. Great. It’d be less than useful if it could not. We also support evaluation of PMML XML models. Super. It’s nice to be able to actually execute models too. The problem An object model marshaller for all occasions. OurRead more →

Line splicing is a feature available in BPMN and DMN editors that allows dropping a node on top of a connector in order to automatically split it into two connectors and perform the right connection assignments. This way, the authoring process gets smoother and more intuitive once the user doesn’t need to do the connectionsRead more →
Introducing Metadata As much as we aim to empower users with a versatile, easy-to-use tool, sometimes that isn’t enough.

The BPMN2.0 specification already covers those situations in more than one way, now so does the BPMN Editor. After our latest release (Business Central v7.12 and Kogito v0.12.0),Read more →
