Hiya @Dominika Bialek

I like this release because of the user authorisation model and operations audit logging. That's what is needed in the enterprise organisations.
I'm using cbd quite extensively, is there any chance to you could share the roadmap for the next releases? Cheers!

I'm glad the features are helpful. Sorry, I'm not authorized to share the roadmap outside of Hortonworks.

All the best 🙂
