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. With this new experience is an improved data access to Common Data Service and will soon include all of the recent connection improvements.  To streamline use of Common Data Service, the data source selection includes a list of suggested entities.  The ability to use entity views as a filter allows more advanced queries to be used without delegation limits.
