Teiid 8.7 Beta1

After a minor weather delay, we're back on track with 8.7 pre-releases with Beta 1.  Feature highlights since Alpha1 include:
  • TEIID-2809 Pattern based system property substitution has been added to VDB.XML files. Only supported if the DVB is being deployed JBoss EAP.
  • TEIID-2844 Remove unauthorized columns from SELECT * can be enabled via the session property ignore_unauthorized_asterisk. See the Reference for more.
The pace of community issues has been good, so we're up to 55 issues addressed to date. 

At this point we should miss the mid-March release date slightly, but we may need to lengthen the cycle for feature work.  That means the release will be out any time between the end of March to the beginning of May.  Should it be needed, we'll work toward an 8.6 cumulative patch for those who wish to stay on a release version.
  
Thanks,
Steve
