Known issues / Roadmap

  • Find a way to remove or default the CA certs dir
  • Add concept of multiple connection strings for one source (multiple nodes)
  • Add a ConnectionEnvironment that allows for the reuse of connections
  • Message box should be displayed instead of error in connection_test
  • Remove old api compatibility layers (v11)
  • Instead of returning list of results, we should return iterators. This will support larger datasets in a more efficient manner.
  • Implement better CRUD handling
