I just tried the Designer plugin version which was provided today as zip file in this forum,
but i dont know how to use TimerBoundaryEvent. If i attach it to a service task then the
resulting XML looks like this:

  <process id="helloworld" name="helloworld">
    <startEvent id="startevent1" name="Start"></startEvent>
    <serviceTask id="servicetask1" name="Service Task"></serviceTask>
    <exclusiveGateway id="exclusivegateway1" name="Exclusive Gateway"></exclusiveGateway>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow1" name="" sourceRef="startevent1" targetRef="exclusivegateway1"></sequenceFlow>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow2" name="" sourceRef="exclusivegateway1" targetRef="servicetask1"></sequenceFlow>
    <serviceTask id="servicetask2" name="Service Task"></serviceTask>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow3" name="" sourceRef="boundarytimer1" targetRef="servicetask2"></sequenceFlow>
    <parallelGateway id="parallelgateway1" name="Parallel Gateway"></parallelGateway>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow4" name="" sourceRef="servicetask2" targetRef="parallelgateway1"></sequenceFlow>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow5" name="" sourceRef="parallelgateway1" targetRef="exclusivegateway1"></sequenceFlow>
    <endEvent id="endevent1" name="End"></endEvent>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow6" name="" sourceRef="servicetask1" targetRef="endevent1"></sequenceFlow>
    <endEvent id="endevent2" name="End"></endEvent>
    <sequenceFlow id="flow8" name="" sourceRef="parallelgateway1" targetRef="endevent2"></sequenceFlow>
  </process>

Maybe i am missing something, but i have the impression that there is no TimerBondaryEvent in the BPMN2 xml file.

Furthermore, i have problems that i can not edit the properties of elements in the Properties view.
It seems that the Properties view is populated only if i close and reopen it with the properties of the
actual highlighted element, but if i change the highlighted element then the Properties view is not
updated.
