Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Marmotta 3.0.0-incubating released!
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2013 10:27:52 GMT
The Apache Marmotta team is pleased to announce the availability of Apache Marmotta 3.0.0-incubating.
This release is the first incubation release of Apache Marmotta after acceptance into the

Apache Marmotta is an extensible and modular implementation of a Linked Data Platform and
contains a server component as well as many useful libraries for accessing Linked Data resources.
Apache Marmotta is a continuation of the Linked Media Framework (LMF) originally developed
by Salzburg Research, but considerably improved with respect to modularity, reliability, performance
and also licensing. Since the last LMF release was the 2.x series, Apache Marmotta starts
with the version number 3.0.0-incubating.

Apache Marmotta consists of the following components:
- Apache Marmotta Platform: the complete Linked Data server implementation
- KiWi Triple Store: an implementation of a Sesame Sail based on a relational database with
advanced functionalities like rule-based reasoning and versioning of updates
- LDClient: a Linked Data client library that can also wrap other legacy data formats and
access them in a Linked Data style (e.g. the YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook APIs)
- LDCache: a caching component for LDClient allowing to locally cache the retrieved data in
different backends
- LDPath: a path-based query language for the Linked Data Cloud; in combination with LDClient
and LDCache, it allows transparently navigating over different servers

All components can also be used separately, e.g. for Linked Data applications that do not
require a server and only aim to consume Linked Data. More information is available on the
Apache Marmotta Website:


All components are available via Maven Central. Documentation on how to use them can be found
on the webpage. In addition, we offer several distribution packages at:


The Apache Marmotta release currently contains of the following distribution packages:
- Apache Marmotta Installer: an installation wizard that creates a ready-to-run installation
of the Marmotta Platform
- Apache Marmotta Web Application: a .war file of the Marmotta Platform that can be deployed
in most servlet containers
- Apache Marmotta Source Distribution: complete source code
- Apache Marmotta LDPath: a standalone command line tool for running LDPath over the Linked
Data Cloud

The release notes for this release follow:
