Date Wed, 04 Jul 2018 16:35:11 GMT
Apache Jena is a framework for developing Semantic Web and Linked Data

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:
https://s.apache.org/jena-3.8.0-jira

JENA-341/JENA-1537

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:

http://jena.apache.org/documentation/query/text-query.html#linguistic-support-with-lucene-index
http://jena.apache.org/documentation/query/text-query.html#defined-analyzers

JENA-1524/JENA-1525

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
