New features and improvements

Feature Description
Microsoft SSIS: new support for nested task variables Support has been added for nested tasks.
Microsoft SSAS: data flow lineage Profiles have been improved by renaming 'Tabular Model' with 'Measures' and adding group for Perspective.

The handling of ambiguous features has been improved for the SQL expression parser.

Microsoft SSIS: new support for environment variables Support for environment variables has been added.
Talend Data Integration / SQL Override: new multi-statement support Multi-statement support has been added.
Microsoft SSIS: new support for components Support for versioned components has been added.
Google BigQuery Database: JDBC driver based new version of the bridge Support for function arguments has been added.
Talend Data Integration: UPDATE with JOIN using WHERE clause by tMysqlRow does not get table information Support for multiple-table UPDATE has been added.
QlikSense: improved documentation on the required application access privileges to API engine The tooltip of QlikSense bridge has been updated for the required application access privileges to API engine.
Tableau Server: improved documentation on the required Tableau user permissions The tooltip of Tableau bridge has been updated for the required user permissions.
Microsoft Azure Analysis Services (SSAS): new import bridge The new Microsoft Azure Analysis Services (SSAS) import bridge is based on the existing Microsoft SSAS bridge. It allows you to use the User/Password options for Windows desktop and Azure authentication.
AWS Athena Database (via JDBC) - Technical Preview: new native bridge to support views and more Amazon Web Services (AWS) Athena Database (via JDBC) - Technical Preview has been added as a new import bridge.
Oracle MySQL database (via JDBC): parser error on CHARSET Support for CHARSET has been added.
Talend Data Integration: new -talenddatapreparation.backup miscellaneous parameter to improve the integration with Talend Data Preparation The -talenddatapreparation.backup option allows you to embed preparations from a backup created with Talend Data Preparation bridge.
Any database import bridges: improved the import of large models when a bridge has less than 4GB of memory The process for data type creation has been improved when a bridge is dealing with a very large model and has very limited memory. This improvement has been implemented for all database import bridges.

A new custom factorization logic of data type is used to create only unique data types and reuse them as much as possible. It improves the speed of data type creation and limits the memory usage. For example, you can now create 2M features with their data types in three minutes instead of two hours.

Tableau Server: authentication with personal access token You can now authenticate with a personal access token when the username/password authentication method returns HTTP 401 (Unauthorized) response.

When authenticating with a personal access token, you cannot open the report in Tableau directly from Talend Cloud Data Catalog as the workbook name cannot be captured.

Apache Spark (with Python) / Databricks PySpark: miscellaneous parameter -environment.variable unsupported The input parameters expressed via dbutils.widgets have been improved.
