I am trying to use kettle 4.4.0 to read a column family from a Cassandra cluster andI am getting a weird error:

the Column family [COLFAMILY-NAME] does not seem to exist in the keyspace [KEYSPACE-NAME]

I have verified that it does using CQLSH. the one thing I noticed is that we create our keyspaces and column families using CQL 3.0.0 would this be causing this error? If it is the issue is there a workaround?

Yes, this is the problem - CQL 3 is not supported in the version of the Cassandra steps that ship with PDI 4.4.0. It is supported in the new versions of the steps included with PDI 5.

Is PDI 5.0 available for download? I only found 4.4 available when I looked.
