In a previous posting I was asking for a way to combine forks with decision nodes. PlantUML even created a quick test version with that feature.

During that discussion, I already mentioned an alternative: joinspec. This also is a standard activity model feature, it looks like that:

The joinspec is the "{or}" label in the example. Would it be able to add that?

Here is a beta https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

To keep things as simple as possible, we now allow brackets after the "end fork" command, so that you could have:

@startuml
start
fork
:action A;
fork again
:action B;
end fork {or}
stop
@enduml

Not widely tested, so feedback welcome!
