The newest release Pentaho 18.104.22.168.12 in its community edition is available for download at sourceforge (link) since the 22th of may of 2017.
Pedro Alvez announced its availability the same day with an excellent post in his blog (link). He mentions new visualizations, scalability with big data engines and repository improvements -someday they’ll deliver something you can work confortable with, maybe-, and a new web theme. We’ll see how they are supported in the CE edition. A new mobile access for the EE. The PDI team is exited about its ‘metadata injection’ improvements.
