Thrift vs CQL driver for Cassandra


I'm trying to understand how to use JanusGraph in my current environment. Reading the docs I noticed that JanusGraph requires Thrift to be enabled in order to communicate with Cassandra. Does this requirement still apply? Are you planning to switch to CQL driver any time soon?
I'm asking this because in many deployments I use managed Cassandra clusters and the service providers do not allow thrift as a connection option.

Thank you,
