Sesame 2.0-beta6 released

We just released the sixth beta release for Sesame 2.0. We have put the three
months since the previous release to good use. Highlights for this release are:

  • SPARQL support.
    Sesame now supports most of the SPARQL query language. There are only two
    things that remain on the TODO list for the next release: query result
    ordering (ORDER BY) and proper dataset support (partially implemented now).

  • Improved query optimizer.
    Until this release, the query optimizer only performed some fairly basic
    optimizations. This query optimizer has been improved considerably in this
    release, resulting in considerable to dramatic improvements to query
    evaluation performance.

  • Console useability.
    Feedback indicated that managing repository configurations using the console
    wasn't very intuitive. This has been improved, among other things. Please
    consult the (updated) user guide for instructions.

A complete overview of improvements can be found in the changelog:

We expect this release to be the last beta release for Sesame 2.0. Focus for the
next release (Release Candidate 1) will be the transaction handling of the Sail
implementations.

Thank you all for trying out the previous releases and for providing us with
your feedback!
