Meltano 0.19 Released

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.

If this is your first time exploring Meltano, you can follow our installation guide and starter tutorial to get going in minutes!
