We are very pleased to announce the release of Sesame 2.6.0. This is a
major new release with some very exciting features, most importantly:
- SPARQL 1.1 Federation support
Sesame 2.6.0 features support for the SPARQL 1.1 Query Language
Federation extension as specified in the Last Call Working Draft.
This enables the incredibly powerful possibility to directly query and
integrate data from any public SPARQL endpoint.
- SPARQL Repository
The SPARQLRepository enables you to programmaticaly connect to any
SPARQL endpoint via the Repository API. It also offers the option to
send custom HTTP headers (for example API keys) to endpoints which
- User-configurable parser behavior in Repository API
You can now configure the way the parser handles validation, errors, and
datatypes verification when uploading a file directly via the Repository
Apart from these features the release includes a number of bugfixes and
minor improvements, see the Changelog  for full details.
The SPARQL 1.1 federation extensions in Sesame 2.6.0 have been
