We have today released v1.30.0 to the nightly build. This adds two new KNIME URI resolver nodes, one of which operates on a table column, the other on a variable. In each case, the node attempts to convert the
knime:// protocol (
knime://LOCAL etc) to a local file path or
file:// protocol URI.
This provides a direct route to Convert KNIME protocol path to absolute path, for example.
As usual, if you encounter problems with the node, please do get in touch.
