Currently spark-cassandra-connector 2.5.1 supports cassandra OSS driver 4.7.2
We use this version of the connector as we use Spark 2.4.
Currently Cassandra OSS driver has got upgraded to 4.9.0.
So, will spark-cassandra-connector 2.5.x version be upgraded to include version 4.9.0 or above ?
If not, can I exclude the cassandra driver in the connector and include the latest version of cassandra driver ?
