Improved data source selection and Common Data Service views

We are excited to announce that we have added a new experience rolling out this week for selecting data sources in canvas apps and to allow using the Common Data Services views as a filter on entities.  Configuring a gallery or data table control is much easier with a prompt guiding the data source or connector to use.
