Based upon the latest feedback on Teiid and Teiid Designer release work we have decided to
promote Teiid 7.6.1 to be Teiid 7.7. Since 8.0 is already on trunk, a new 7.7.x branch
will be created off of 7.6.x latest and the poms will be updated to 7.7. The target
release date for 7.7 will be approximately one month from now. Since there has been
virtually no feature work on the existing branch we are set to release a beta this week.
A 7.7 release enables us to get a large number of fixes into the community and have a
corresponding release for Teiid Designer 7.7.
Work on Teiid 8.0 is also progressing nicely. Ramesh completed the doc migration to
Confluence - https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/TEIID/Home
. Anyone interested in
making doc changes can be setup for write access and added as a watcher of the space. We
should also be able to put out another pre-release this week, more than likely Alpha2. It
is clear though that tooling will lag the initial 8.0 release. There will not be a Teiid
Designer 8.0 until later and it is expected to correspond with Teiid 8.1. We are also
unlikely to have much in the way of admin console functionality, but that is actively
