We are pleased to announce that after many long hours of work Teiid 7.0 CR1 is available.
This candidate release refines our separation of the old connector API into light weight
Translators and JCA components . Text  and web service  integration has been
redesigned from the ground up to simplify usage. Nearly all of SQL/XML 2003  support
has been added, as well as XMLTABLE  and XMLQUERY  from SQL/XML 2006 which replace
our old xml/relational logic and direct XQuery integration respectively. See the examples
for a dyanmic vdb that calls and processes REST and RPC webservices from the National
Weather Service for getting started with some of the XML features.
Support for nested table references was added , which is a better alternative
Teiid's procedural relational style queries. And finally the AdminShell now has both
a command line and a graphical mode thanks to a redesign utilizing Groovy .
As you can see there is a lot of new and powerful features available. Check it out today
