e.g. 5.3.5928 where the major number is 5, the minor number is 3 and the build number is 5928.
The integrated releases have their own version, e.g. 6.2.0, 6.2.1 and so on.


* OWLIM-2151 Storage tool should discover wrong page size in the page index and storage files
* OWLIM-2199 Storage tool should group the statements by their flags and compare counts for each group between pso and pos indexes
* OWLIM-2199 Storage tool scan command group the indexes statements by their flags and compare counts for each group and on this base report repository consistence

* Parallel Reasoning in LoadRDF
* Workbench - new Import, Export and Repository views
* The Lucene connector is now included in GraphDB SE

h5. GraphDB Engine [Component version: 6.2.1]
* LoadRDF uses lock-free data structure for faster multithreaded inference
* LoadRDF - the reverse cache option was removed
* GRAP-4 A fix for anomalous query behaviour
* OWLIM-2069 Fixed minor memory leak (which was present in OWLIM 5.4 as well)
* OWLIM-2086 Fix: The vars of the PluginPattern were not cloned (this potentially leads to a wrong result)
* OWLIM-2021 New Import View
-- *- the import is now asynchronous and keeps the state between restarts
-- *- there are two new ways to import a file - from a text area and from a data URL
-- *- native support for chunking + retry for each import
-- *- REST endpoints for everything which can be reused by clients
-- *- much better UI

* OWLIM-2009 Create a new overhauled repository view based on Angular JS with better user experience
-- *- rethink the structure of the page so the active location is moved at the top along with the repositories
-- *- create a RESTful API that will allow client to do locations management through RESTful endpoints
-- *- lazy initialization for repositories

* OWLIM-2022 Create a new export view based on Angular JS
-- *- Exporting the whole repository should be much more explicit now
-- *- The export view now only uses the Sesame endpoints

* OWLIM-2087 The import operation now sends the input stream directly to Sesame (instead of uploading a temp file first)

* Removed the same as from the SPARQL view because it was leading to major bugs
* \~/.owlim-workbench is changed to \~/.graphdb-workbench so previous state in the workbench will be lost. There are changes to the contents of this folder, so a simple copy/rename of the old folder won't work.

* OWLIM-1819 Import doesn't support BinaryRDF (.brf)
* OWLIM-1785 Unable to get system info if there isn't location selected
* OWLIM-1764 Repository size is \-1 and the reason is not available
* OWLIM-1782 Properly start the workbench if the directory for the location from the last time is missing and cannot be created
* OWLIM-1759 Error message appears when deleting a master repository
* Full support for matching literal languages
* More control over how data is mapped:
-- *- field options more closely reflect the options in Lucene/Solr/Elasticsearch
-- *- control over how RDF literals are mapped to Lucene/Solr/Elasticsearch types
* Support for many more types of faceting and aggregations in Solr and Elasticsearch, e.g. ranges and histograms
* Improvements and extensions to the entity filter

h1. GraphDB 6.1-SP3

This Service Pack 3 build addresses some reported problems with 6.1

* Fixed a problem where queries containing UNION and BIND were under certain circumstances returning incorrect results
* New merge command for the storage tool
* OWLIM-1932 Count from graph [] does not work for describe queries
* OWLIM-1934 Removed some old and unwanted namespaces that were included by default
* OWLIM-1928 Added reversed numeric and date literal indices for better performance

h5. GraphDB Workbench 6.4.1

- See all the release notes here: []

h1. GraphDB 6.1-SP1

This Service Pack 1 build addresses consistency issue with the GraphDB Storage.

h2. GraphDB 6.1.8410

- fixed: [owlim-1853|owlim-1853] LoadRDF under Windows sometimes does not include statements in the PSO index and the indexes are incosistent;
- Added a check/warning to see if there is enough memory for the entity pool when it gets restored from persistence (-Xmx - cache-memory should be >= entity pool size * 1.25, i.e. 25% overhead is left for the datatype index and other in-memory structures included in the entity pool and for other purposes, e.g. for running queries).

h2. GraphDB Workbench 6.3.2

- See all the release notes here: []

- *Much faster write transactions* for small insert/update/delete operations on large repositories. Results on LDBC [Semantic Publishing Benchmark|] (SPB) at 50M went up from 32 read and 12 write queries per second in ver. 6.0 to 40 reads/s and 31 writes/s in ver. 6.1. The improvement gets even more visible and SPB at 1B scale: from 10 reads/s and 2 writes/s in ver. 6.0 to 11 reads/s and 10 writes/s in ver. 6.1. In summary, GraphDB 6.1 is able to handle twice more updates at 50M scale and 5 times more updates at scale of 1 billion statements. This way GraphDB 6.1 is already capable to deal with true Dynamic Semantic Publishing scenario, like the one of [BBC|], at a scale of 1 billion statements and higher.

- *Improved load capabilities for large new datasets in live databases* instances. Scenario description: there is a production cluster with average load - running LDBC-50m (SPB) with 4 reading threads (doing select queries) and 1 writing thread (doing update queries). We need to add a large dataset (e.g. DBPedia) with hundreds of millions statements -- as fast as possible, but without disrupting the overall cluster speed too much (not introducing write latency of more than 1-2s). The data set doesn't need inference, so it is loaded with the empty rule set.

h1. GraphDB version 6.0-RC6

This is an integrated release that includes:
- GraphDB Engine 6.0.8210

h2. GraphDB Engine 6.0.8120

- Fixed Lucene plugin to support Custom Analyzers/Scorers (this was broken on 6.0 releases due to plugin classloader not loading jars from the plugin directory)
- [OWLIM-1730|OWLIM-1730] fixed handling of a failed initialisation within LiteralsPlugin
- [OWLIM-1712|OWLIM-1712] Query Optimizer does not apply 'strong' equality within FILTER when bot variables are used as subject of some statement patterns
- OWLIM-1615: Fixed how running queries are handled on shutdown

h1. GraphDB version 6.0-RC5

This is an integrated release that includes:
- GraphDB Engine 6.0.8070

h2. GraphDB Engine 6.0.8070

h3. Major changes:

- Query monitoring via JMX - the full text of the query is now visible
- Fixes for the Constraint Violation support & multiple rulesets
- Faster update speeds
-- Now using GraphDB Custom NTriples/NQuads parser by default (so NTriples, NQuad formats are parsed faster than other formats)
-- when a transaction is using the *empty* ruleset, the commit can added to all indexes in parallel. In order to use this experiment feature, add the special system statement: _:b <> _:b \_:b <[]> \_:b in the beginning of the transacton. This makes sense for larger transactions (10K statements and above).

h3. Full list of changes:

- OWLIM-1628 Added a fix of the issue of not being able to explore a ruleset when the empty ruleset was set initially.
- OWLIM-1626 RepositoryException in Worker is not thrown by the Master
- OWLIM-1572 Query Monitoring - show query text instead of query id
- OWLIM-1559 Fixed property path bug when same property paths are repeated in the query
- F-320 JMX: NumberOfExplicitTriples and NumberOfTriples shows \-1 even though data has been written to the triple store
- OWLIM-1563 Fixed the issue with custom ruleset + disable-sameAs=true.
- OWLIM-1559 Implemented a shortcut in the MINUS operator which allows for faster calculation when the MINUS is over two subqueries with one triple pattern (which may have filters).

h1. GraphDB version 6.0-RC4

This is an integrated release that includes:
- GraphDB Engine 6.0.7914

h1. GraphDB version 6.0-RC3 (build 7914)

h2. Fixes:

* The plugins were moved to <webapps>/openrdf-sesame/WEB-INF/classes/plugins
* Running GraphDB under embedded Tomcat failed with NPE (because of non existing webapps/ folder)

h2. Improvements:

* Added mini LDBC Semantic Publishing Benchmark ([]) into benchmark/ldbc-spb folder in the distribution
* The plugins are now in <webapps>/openrdf-sesame/plugins folder. Lucene plugin is enabled by default. This could be overwritten by the
\-Dregister-external-plugins option
* Minor rearrangement of the files in the main distribution folder (all .pie files are put into rules/ subfolder, the scripts into scripts/ subfolder)

h2. Fixes:

* Fixed issue with the default/evaluation license
* Fixed issue with the LoadRDF tool

h2. Version 6.0 (build 7784)

* Faster writes in SAFE Mode (OWLIM 5.5 improvement which lead to incompatible binary formats between 5.4 and 5.5+)
* LoadRDF tool for faster bulk loading of data; speeds \~100KSt/s and above, without inference
* Explain Plan like functionality
* LVM-based Backup and Replication

h2. Fixes:

* Databases created with one setting of the "entity-id-size" parameter (32 vs 40-bit) and opened with another setting, would crash in versions prior to 6.0. Now an exception is thrown and the repository is not initialized.
