* *SwiftOWLIM* has been renamed to *OWLIM-Lite* and is now distributed as a single jar file (previously it was split between SwiftOWLIM and SwiftTRREE). The new package is licensed free-for-use, which better fits the use and distribution model. *OWLIM-Lite* is the younger sibling of *OWLIM-SE (standard edition)*, the fully-featured, standalone semantic repository distributed under a commercial license.
* *Easy to deploy WAR files:* The distribution now includes {{openrdf-sesame}} and {{openrdf-workbench}} Web applications pre-configured with OWLIM and ready to deploy. This makes installing OWLIM as a server and creating/administrating OWLIM repositories trivially simple. The WAR files can be found in the {{sesame_owlim}} directory of the distribution ZIP file. See 'easy install' in the [installation section|OWLIMv40:OWLIM-Lite Installation].
* *SPARQL 1.1 Query:* Ontotext has invested significant development resources in the [Sesame project|http://www.openrdf.org/] in order bring SPARQL 1.1 support to Sesame and OWLIM. This release includes [SPARQL 1.1 Query|http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-query/], but without federation support for the moment. [SPARQL 1.1 Update|http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-update/] support will be included in the next release. The new features include:
** Aggregates

This release includes many bug fixes and documentation updates. The most significant of these are:
* *Online documentation:* As well as the PDF format user guides included in the OWLIM distribution zip files, [the latest documentation for all editions of OWLIM is now available online|OWLIMv40:Home].
* *Artificial limit on ruleset size removed:* Very large custom rule-sets were causing out of memory exceptions or problems during compilation. The size of rule-sets is now practically unlimited.
* *Bug Fix - Data loss from abnormal termination:* This fix prevents data from being lost after two successive abnormal terminations. This was due to a misidentification of backup files.
