Now Available: Meltano v1.36.0

Today, we are excited to release Meltano version 1.36.0, which (among other things) introduces “file bundle” plugins that are used to automatically add plugin-specific files to your Meltano project when adding a plugin like the dbt transformer or Airflow orchestrator.

Before, these Airflow and dbt-specific files would be included in every newly initialized Meltano project, even if neither plugin was never actually used.

These changes pave the way for resolving the “Add Dockerfile to new project that will build project-specific image with plugins already installed” issue with a new docker file bundle that can easily be added to any Meltano project using meltano add files docker.

Excited to try it out?

To upgrade Meltano and your Meltano project to the latest version, navigate to your project directory, activate the appropriate virtual environment, and run meltano upgrade. This will upgrade the meltano package and apply any necessary changes to your project.

What else is new?

The list below (copied from the changelog) covers all of the changes made to Meltano since the release of v1.35.1 on June 11:
