As you may or may not know, the BPMN2 Modeler is sponsored by JBoss/Red Hat and was originally developed as the primary BPM process editor for Eclipse tooling for Drools/jBPM (which is being rebranded as BRMS/BPMS and/or BxMS, B*MS, etc.) The long-range plan for the jBPM product is to migrate existing developers to use the Web Tooling (a.k.a. KIE Workbench) editors within the Eclipse IDE. How, when and if this is going to work is still a bit of a mystery but suffice it to say that the plan is to deprecate the BPMN2 Modeler native Eclipse plug-in, in favor of "Web Designer" which is the browser-based BPM process editor offered by KIE Workbench.
My personal feelings aside, I'm not convinced that Web Designer is the best choice for a native Eclipse BPM process development tool, and I'm trying to build a case to present to my Product Manager, arguing against discontinuing development of the BPMN2 Modeler project. Since Red Hat is the industry leader in Open Source Software, we do listen to you the community members when it comes to these kinds of decisions.
