dbt 0.9.0 alpha 1
This is an alpha version of the dbt 0.9.0 release. It may contain bugs or incompatibilities with previous versions of dbt. Please reach out to us on Slack or create an issue if you have any questions or find any such bugs.
Over the next few weeks, we (and hopefully you) will put dbt through its paces, fixing bugs or tweaking features as required. When we're happy with the results, we will release
dbt v0.9.0 through the regular channels including pypi, homebrew, and conda. If you're interested in using the alpha preview in the meantime, you can do so using the installation instructions below.

Since this is an alpha release, package managers like
conda will still point to the last production release,

dbt v0.9.0a1, you must either install this version explicitly from pip, or install from source.

Note: we recommend that you install dbt into a virtualenv. While this isn't necessary, it may save you a headache if you choose to roll back to 0.8.3, or when the time comes to upgrade to the final 0.9.0 release.
