We sincerely thank everyone who participated in the community.  All bugs/posts are helpful in refining Teiid.  We are looking forward to your input on 8.8.

If have been using Teiid and would like fully supported version, Red Hat has released Data Virtualization V6 (DV6).  The DV platform has comprehensive support from Red Hat including services/training.
