Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache UIMA Ruta 2.1.0 released
Date Fri, 20 Sep 2013 14:38:24 GMT
The Apache UIMA team is pleased to announce the release of the Apache
UIMA Ruta (Rule-based Text Annotation), version 2.1.0.

Apache UIMA Ruta is a rule-based script language supported by
Eclipse-based tooling. The language is designed to enable rapid
development of text processing applications within UIMA. A special focus
lies on the intuitive and flexible domain specific language for defining
patterns of annotations. The Eclipse-based tooling,
called the Apache UIMA Ruta Workbench, was created to support the
user and to facilitate every step when writing rules. Both
the rule language and the workbench integrate
smoothly with Apache UIMA.

Major Changes in this Release

UIMA Ruta Language and Analysis Engine:

- Combinations of rule elements that specify no sequential constraint
- Rule elements with inlined rules, which are interpreted as "actions"
or "conditions"
- Dot notation for accessing features, also available as matching conditions
- Implicit actions and conditions
- New analysis engines for CAS manipulation
- Direct import of uimaFIT analysis engines without descriptor
- RutaEngine is now a uimaFIT component
- Manual specification of the start anchor for a rule match
- Many bug fixes

UIMA Ruta Workbench:

- Compatible with uimaj 2.4.2 and Eclipse Kepler
- New framework for constraint-driven evaluation
- Two new rule learning algorithms for the TextRuler framework
- New views, e.g., Annotation Check and Html viewer
- Combinations with java projects
- Open CAS Editor at Eclipse startup causes less problems
- Many bug fixes

For a full list of the changes, please refer to Jira:

The released artifacts will soon appear on maven central.
The update site for the UIMA Ruta Workbench is already available.
