    Upcoming END OF LIFE announcement for WranglerView

    ===============================================================================

    Beginning with the 6.8 release, WranglerView will be entering a "sunset"
    phase. It will continue to ship until Qube v7.0.

    WranglerView will not have any major new features or functionality added to
    this or future versions, and any changes will be limited to bug fixes or
    minor feature additions necessary to facilitate customer needs
    until they can make the transition over to the new Qube UI.

    From Qube 7.0 onwards, all major functionality encompassed in WranglerView is
    anticipated to have been ported over to the framework that the current
    ArtistView is built on. With some additional features added along the way,
    this will be known as the new Qube UI.

    There may be new minor features added to the administration and
    wrangler-centric functionality of WranglerView as needed until such
    time as the new Qube UI achieves parity with current
    WranglerView functionality.

    ===============================================================================
    Highlighted 7.0 Changes
    ===============================================================================

    No direct database access in Qube 7.0
    -------------------------------------

    Due to the upcoming "Secure View" features in Qube, direct database access
    is no longer supported. Since database access is unavailable from any host
    except the supervisor, the following has been removed from WranglerView:

    Administration->Database Maintenance menus have been removed. Database
    maintenance functionality will initially be provided via cmdline
    utilities, we are investigating integrating this into a supervisor-only
    UI.

    The "memory usage" stats are no longer available. This was a statistic
    that was only available on linux workers and necessitated the
    installation of an additional data collector on all workers.

    The "Performance Charts" are no longer available. These are being
    moved to the online system metrics system available on our online
    portal, and will be available in an upcoming version of Qube 7.

    The "Banned Hosts" management tab is now unavailable; this was
    populated by a SQL query, conversion to an API query is in progress,
    and when this is complete this functionality will be restored.
