However, are we going to see Druid Docker image updated soon accordingly?

Looking forward to see those new features in action.

Great news. This is Amazing!

Hey Shinesun,

The Druid Docker image isn’t part of the official release process at this time so it is often not updated straight away. If you are able to do a patch to update it, it would be welcome.
