Please allow variable usage in the regular expression field of the "Get File Names" transformation step in the Pentaho Data Integration module (formerly known as Kettle). The directory field of this step supports variables, but the regular expression field does not (or at least does not appear to support them). I'm particularly interested in passing the entire regular expression as a variable, as intermixing variables within a regex would probably lead to syntaxical errors anyhow. This would allow for some incredibly dynamic regular expressions. Thanks, and keep up the fantastic work!
