Riak Recap time. The user lists have been quieter than usual, so we will
use this round to share some other news as well. Send me feedback if you
ever have articles to share or recommendations for topics!

## Latest Releases
* The .NET client upgraded to 2.2.0 [0]. Thanks to Luke and community
* Basho Data Platform 1.0.0 is out there [1] and we love to see your code
using it - share with us [2]
* We also continue to update documentation for our open source Spark
Connector, that leverages an updated 2i query for parallel extract from BDP
