Apache Hop 2.4.0 is another mostly bug fixing release with a number of new features.

When selecting multiple transforms, you can now enable or disable all hops in this selection from the context dialog.
A new Data Validator transform. This transform allows you to add data validations which can each validate the input data for the various fields in the input rows.
You can now change the default behavior of the environment dropdown box (show all environments) to only show the environments for the selected project. (Configuration perspective → Plugins → Projects → check "Restrict environment list to active project")
Apache Hop comes with lots of new and improved documentation pages, translation updates and a batch of new samples in the samples project.
Translations for German, Italian and French have been updated.
The default path for the hop installation inside the container image has been updated from
/opt/hop. Make sure to update your paths if you extended or modified the base image.
The Hop community continues to grow!
No new committers have been added since the 2.3.0 release.
