Talend asked me to beta test their RC

A couple weeks ago I had signed up for Talend’s beta tester newsletter. Yesterday I got the following email from them. Not sure when I will have time to try this new version but it seems to address some of the points discussed lately.

Here is the email:

Dear Talend Community Member,
