8.9 Beta2 Available

8.9 Beta2 has been posted to the downloads: http://teiid.jboss.org/downloads/

This pre-release builds upon Beta1 to provide performance improvements for dup removal and any usage of our internal table structure and many new fixes.  In fact we are up to ~75 issues being addressed and will likely get close to 100 before the end of the release.

Special thanks to Joseph Chidiac for uncovering a variety of issues from Salesforce to windowing and general planning issues.  Community usage of the later pre-releases is vital to producing a quality final release.  So be sure to engage the forums and log issues as soon as you experience them.

Expect a candidate release to follow in approximately 2 weeks.  At which time we can start on the 8.10 and ideally the 9.0 Wildfly efforts.

Thanks,

Steve / The Teiid Team

Teiid 8.9 Beta1

8.9 Beta1 is now available from the downloads and maven.  Feature highlights since Alpha1 include:
  • TEIID-3050 Increased Insert Performance with sources that support batching or insert with iterator.
  • TEIID-3044 Function Metadata is available through system tables and DatabaseMetaData.
  • TEIID-1910 TeiidPlatform for EclipseLink integration is now provided via the teiid-eclipselink-platform jar in maven.
With a total of 59 issues addressed so far, this continues to be primarily a fix release - but there's still time to vote for or log enhancements to make this release.

Ideally we'll still get OData 4 support via Olingo in the near term.  However it is becoming doubtful that it will make it into the 8.9 release.

Thanks again for all the community support, especially when there are infrastructure issues. We try to ensure that every forum posting gets attention, but notifications are still inconsistent at best. If something hasn't been addressed in a couple of days, feel free to re-comment on your topic.

Thanks,
Steve
