It's been a busy start to the year for Developer Exchange and its related sites. The biggest change has been the long-awaited integration of the legacy Teradata Discussion Forums with the DevX Forums at the new Teradata Forums site. We've migrated across all content and user accounts, so if you've previously posted in the Teradata Discussion forums, all your history is available on the new site. Also, we've rearranged and merged some of the forums so that the purpose of each forum is clearer. For more details on the changes, see Teradata Forums migration imminent, or discuss the changes here. Another significant improvement is that we've enabled HTTPS support for the sensitive areas of the site, such as login, registration, and profile update.

The new Workload Health and Workload Monitor portlets provide state-of-the-art workload monitoring and visualization capabilities unavailable for any other platform. If you're making extensive use of workloads, this is a release you should not miss.

And finally in downloads, we released Teradata XML Services 13.0 and Teradata .NET Data Provider
