sparklyr 1.3 release

Yitao Li <yitao@...>

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

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