Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Jena 3.8.0
Date Wed, 04 Jul 2018 16:35:11 GMT
Apache Jena is a framework for developing Semantic Web and Linked Data
applications in Java. It provides implementation of W3C standards for
RDF and SPARQL and comprehensive APIs and tooling around those standards.


The Apache Jena development community is pleased to announce the release 
of Apache Jena 3.8.0!

== Key features of the release

JIRA completed this release:


Xerces dependency removed.  Jena no longer depends on Xerces which should 
avoid classpath compatibility issues with environments that provide Xerces. This
also resolves a known security vulnerability with Xerces.

JENA-1488, JENA-1556

Text Search and Indexing enhancements for better multilingual support.  See the
updated documentation for details:



Some package renaming and Automatic-Module-Name's for JPMS compatibility

This may require changes to advanced users who make changes to the Jena system initialization,
see the following for details:



Improved bulk loader for TDB2, alternative bulk loading schemes that are more friendly
for environments with non-dedicated workloads i.e. more efficient bulk loading without
dominating machine resources.


Support for bz2 compressed inputs and outputs


TBD2 now available via Fuseki command line and UI
