Blazegraph Tinkerpop3

      <version>1.0.0</version>
   </dependency>

Mavenization

Everybody loves (and hates) Maven.  Starting with the 2.0.0 release, Blazegraph has been broken into a collection of maven artifacts.    This has enabled us to work on new features like TinkerPop3, which require Java 8 support while keeping the core platform at Java 7 to support users who are still there.   Checkout the Maven Notes on the wiki for full details on the architecture, getting started with development, building snapshots, etc.  If you have a 1.5.3 version checked out in Eclipse, you will want to pay attention to Getting Started with Eclipse and allocate a little extra time for the transition.

Deployers

2.1.4 provides updates for the Debian Deployer, an RPM Deployer, and a Tarball.  In addition to the blazegraph.war and blazegraph.jar archives.
