 Bug Fixes for the update to Lucene 5.5.0 Version
Blazegraph 2.1.1 provides fixes for Lucene 5.5.0 support. There’s a guide to reindexing with the updated Lucene tokenizers here. It also now includes support for adding a text index to an existing namespace without reloading.

GeoSpatial Searching

Did you try the GeoSpatial features in 2.1.0? 2.1.1 has some important updates and fixes. The full details are on the Wiki. As a quick start, you can configure your namespace to enable geo-spatial:

Add some data with geospatial information:

@prefix geoliteral: <> .
@prefix example: <> .

    rdf:type example:Fair ;
    rdfs:label "Oktoberfest 2013" ;
    example:happened "48.13188#11.54965#1379714400"^^geoliteral:lat-lon-time ;
                example:city example:Munich .

    rdf:type example:Festival ;
    rdfs:label "Rock am Ring 2013" ;
    example:happened "50.33406#6.94259#1370556000"^^geoliteral:lat-lon-time ;
                example:city example:Nuerburg .

Then issue some queries to get started!

PREFIX geoliteral: <>
PREFIX geo: <>
PREFIX example: <>

  SERVICE geo:search {
    ?event geo:search "inCircle" .
    ?event geo:searchDatatype geoliteral:lat-lon-time .
    ?event geo:predicate example:happened .
    ?event geo:spatialCircleCenter "48.13743#11.57549" .
    ?event geo:spatialCircleRadius "100" . # default unit: Kilometers
    ?event geo:timeStart "1356994800" . # 01.01.2013, 00:00:00
    ?event geo:timeEnd "1388530799" .   # 31.12.2013, 23:59:59

Maven Central

Blazegraph 2.1.1 is now on Maven Central.    You can also get the Tinkerpop3 API and the new BlazegraphTPFServer.

    <!-- Use if Tinkerpop 2.5 support is needed ; See also Tinkerpop3 below. -->


Blazegraph Tinkerpop3

Tinkerpop3 is here!  Get it from Maven Central.


Blazegraph-Based TPF Server
The TPF Server for Blazegraph (TP4Blazegraph) is a Linked Data Fragment (LDF) server that provides a Triple Pattern Fragment (TPF) interface using the Blazegraph graph database as backend.  It was originally developed by Olaf Hartig and is being released via Blazegraph under the Apache 2 license.   See here to get started.


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.


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