i would like to know if Spark ist still being developed and if there will be a new release this year?
Spark is currently in a development limbo as there are no active developers working on it and there are too many issues with the current code to do a release. I’m starting to think there could be no new version at all. But you might watch this topic and maybe at some point all the issues get fixed Issues blocking 2.9.0 release
I wouldn’t be so pessimistic, but it could be true that there is no release this year. Money influx could change that of course
