Re: sparklyr 1.3 release

+1 to kick off another release!

It's hard to read from the NEWS file but there were three major features implemented for this release:
- Support for High-order functions to help users transform fields with nested arrays and structures.
- Support to easily read/write Avro.
- Support to read/write any file format using custom R functions and R packages.

That to me feels like enough functionality to push another release out. Looking forward to having it on CRAN!

sparklyr committers and public technical mailing list,

It looks like we now have several new features (e.g., support for higher-order function, more seamless integration with Apache Avro, and more) and some important bug fixes as well since the sparklyr 1.2 release, and should kick off another release soon. You can view the list of changes I have so far since the 1.2 release in https://github.com/sparklyr/sparklyr/pull/2550

Any objection to cutting the release branch on Friday next week? After that we'll vote on the 1.3 release as usual.

Best,
Yitao
