With the successful creation of the 8.13 transitional release, we are now ready to start the release stream for 9.0 with Alpha1 . Please consult the migration documentation from 8.x to 9, and let us know if there is more content that needs added. The main features in Alpha1 beyond targeting WildFly 9.0.2 are: TEIID-3601 Large row counts internal tables and source queries are no longer limited to max integer rows. However update counts, count aggregate values, user result sets, etc. are still limited to max integer. TEIID-3792 Array Quantified Comparisons can be used to search array values - for example expression = SOME (array_expression) TEIID-3462 Semantic VDB Versioning can be used in the VDB name and connection string, rather than the simple integer version. See the Reference for more. TEIID-3849 Cassandra Update Improvements for bulk/batch updates and asynch processing. TEIID-3869 Additional geospatial support for Geoserver integration with Teiid.
