8.7 CR1 Posted

8.7 CR1 has been posted to the downloads.  Since Beta2 this release includes features such as:
  • TEIID-2859 TEXTTABLE FOR ORDINALITY a FOR ORDINALITY column can now be used with TEXTTABLE. See the Reference for more.
  • TEIID-965 Apache POI based Excel connectivity has been added. See the Reference for more.
  • TEIID-2888 Designer VDB support in Embedded is now available. With a few caveats, Designer .INDEX based vdbs can now be used with Teiid Embedded. See the Embedded Guide for more. 
There is also a new framework for translator to supply importer and extension metadata for better integration with Designer.  This will likely evolve slightly before the final release.  Also there is a small KI with this release affecting custom delegating translators.  If you experience an issue with a custom delegating translator, please follow master or wait for CR2.

In total we are closing in on 100 issues for this release and anticipate a release date around 4/16.  Thanks for all of the great feedback, please do check out the candidate releases as we still have time to refine/add fixes before final.

Teiid 8.8 will be kicking off shortly with the CR out of the way.  Take a pass through JIRA or log additional issues if there are things that you want to see make it into the next release.

Thanks,
Steve
