New Feature

  • [KITE-311] - Add DatasetRepository#getUri method
  • [KITE-318] - Add a sampling morphline command that forwards each input record with a given probability to its child, and silently ignores all other input records
  • [KITE-319] - Add morphline command that ignores all input records beyond the N-th record, thus emitting at most N records, akin to the Unix head command


  • [KITE-313] - Deprecate MetadataProvider usages


  • [KITE-247] - The dataset-staging example should run in parallel
  • [KITE-310] - addValuesIfAbsent morphline command should avoid performance degradation for large N
  • [KITE-312] - Add a module that contains examples for how to unit test Morphline config files and custom Morphline commands
  • [KITE-315] - Improve morphline import performance if all commands are specified via fully qualified class names


  • [KITE-304] - Backport flume DatasetSink changes
  • [KITE-307] - Add DatasetInputFormat
  • [KITE-308] - Add DatasetOutputFormat
  • [KITE-324] - Regression in support for POJOs (Avro reflect) in Crunch dataset source
  • [KITE-325] - Minimize view constraints when filtering entities
  • [KITE-343] - Move partition strategy and field partitioners to SPI
