UPDATE: version 3.0 has been released!
Today it is with great pleasure that on behalf of the entire PDI team, I’m able to offer you RC2 of the long-awaited version 3 of Pentaho Data Integration.
Thanks to our enormous efforts we have been able to bring the number of bugs down to a minimum (See: http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI).
Even though you should not use any development versions such as RC2 in production, we do hope you will continue to help us test PDI and that you file bug reports for any issue you might find.
Over 250 issues have already been resolved in the last couple of months and we went through and fixed all open issues with priority Blocker, Critical, Severe and most of the Medium priorities too. A number of those still have to be re-tested and closed, but it’s a good sign nevertheless.
The Spoon user guide documentation has also received an update and we are also continuing work on our version 3 migration guide.
Here are the zip files for Kettle 3.0.0 RC2 :
- The binary distribution (77MB zip file)
- The source code (111MB zip file)
- The updated Spoon user guide (PDF)
Please note that for version 3 you need version 1.5 (Java 5) or higher of a Java Runtime Environment in order to use our software.
Until next time,
