Hi Shawn (and all Talend team)!
it would be good to have "Whats-new" files for each beta version - you use community as beta testers :-) and it is fine, but and for us is good to know - what new and interesting in new version without go thru all components.
I don't think we have started any What's new document at this point of the release. It's still a very early milestone.
Let me check internally whether we could have some change log (quite rough) to share.
What can be interesting for the Community though on early milestones would be to check if some known issues from the previous versions were fixed for example. Those fixes often take place after a version is gone GA but as there is no patch delivery on Open Source tools, it only gets available in the next version.
Kind reminder, Milestones should not be used for production.
7.2 is a feature update, there will be a bunch of new features and functions added to the product line, although they may also be security updates along the line.
As a quick explanation about the reason why we use 7.2.1 and not 7.2.0 as first version is because the version 7.2.0 is a beta version that get distributed to only a selection of customers and internally for bug detection and regression deflection purpose, so that when we go GA with 7.2.1, the product meets our go live standards. (doesn't mean we found all bugs or issues though, but we do our best )
I hope I answered your question.
What does a middle number update mean? is it a 'feature' update where a minor number means bug/security fix? Trying to figure out the number parts and what they mean as we are looking at upgrading to 7.x soon.
