Subject [ANN] Apache Jena 3.8.0
Date Mon, 02 Jul 2018 09:44:54 GMT
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

= Upgrades to libraries (runtime dependencies):

- Apache Commons Compress 1.17 (JENA-1554)
