Hi Big Data Explorers,


The Hue Team is glad to thanks all the contributors and release Hue 4.1! 

The focus of this release was to keep making progress on the modernization and simplification of the Hue 4 UI without introducing any major feature. The SQL editor is smarter and the ground for better speed and visualizations was prepared (coming in the next release). This release is more of a “quality/transition”  with 900 commits and 250+ bug fixes! Go grab the tarball and give it a spin!
