Microsoft has made the latest version of Azure Feature Pack for Integration Services (SSIS) and it is available for downloading. This was released on 28-Dec-2016 and there are few addition components added when comparing with the previous version.
Why we need this? Simply to work with Big Data as part of our ETL solution with the support of Azure Big Data platform which is HDInsight and supportive projects.
I wrote few posts on previous version of this, you can read more on them at;
Creating HDInsight Hadoop Cluster using SSIS and processing unstructured data using Hive Task - Azure Feature Pack - Part I
Creating HDInsight Hadoop Cluster using SSIS and processing unstructured data using Hive Task - Azure Feature Pack - Part II
The above posts explain how to download and install the feature pack, configure tasks for accessing HDInsight and process some unstructured data using tasks given with SSIS.

I noticed one Control Flow new Task; Azure SQL DW Upload Task and two Data Flow items; Azure Data Lake Store Source and Azure Data Lake Store Destination that were not available with the previous version.
Need to test these new items, must be really interesting, will surely share them via blog posts.
