TPT 15.10 ODBC Operator : Bundled DataDirect Drivers !

Just so everyone knows:
A topic that has come up several times with the TPT ODBC Operator is that some of us (including me - dev only!) have used the non-supported ODBC drivers.  
When things start to go wrong, you'll probably come to the Forum or re-read the TPT Documentation.  I for one wouldn't read the TTU release notes, which just happened to contain this piece of information:

TPT to Bundle Progress/DataDirect ODBC Drivers for TPT

ODBC Operator to allow data to be pulled from other databases;
e.g., Oracle.

This is great news for Teradata 15.10 TPT, and will spread the use of the ODBC Operator.
+1 Teradata, and Steven Feinholz !

Yah, well, it sucks becasue you have to purchase a DataDirect license in order to use the 64-bit drivers.

This is not true.
We bundle both the 32-bit and 64-bit drivers with TPT.
You do not have to purchase the license from DataDirect.
However, you do need to obtain the license files from us.
