Matt Burgess commented on NIFI-1662:

Edited the above PR comment to read: "I like the idea of a subset, we can 
probably cover 90% of the cases people have for floating-point literals (who 
uses Hex literals for floating point?!), but it might warrant a discussion with 
the community if it would involve a breaking change later. I think if we went 
with a subset of decimal literals for now we'd be in good shape, and could add 
others later as the use cases present."  The PR has been out there for a while, 
available for review.

> Currently the math operations in Expression Language use Longs to evaluate 
> numbers. This leads to any decimal places getting truncated when performing 
> operations like divide. 
> NiFi should support working with decimals
