    1. Good stuff. Are all new features and forward development now happening on your Github master branch? Please confirm that the Teiid 8.11 branch on Github is planned to get only defect fixes and patches.

      1. You can see JIRA for new items being planned for 8.12 & 9.0. If there is particular feature you are thinking about please let us know.

        Yes, 8.11 branch will not have any more updates. Typically if we find any bugs we patch them in the master branch which is 8.12, unless we come across bug of severe nature then we will release 8.11.1 in community.
