We are thrilled to release so many improvements to Meltano this week, with a special focus on bringing greater feature parity between the Command Line Interface (CLI) and the User Interface (UI). Our vision for Meltano spans many roles in a company, often involving cross-team collaboration of a data engineer and a data analyst. Through these improvements, and many more coming in the next few weeks, we look forward to meeting our users where they’re already getting work done every day.
