We are very pleased to announce the release of Eclipse RDF4J 2.5. This release addresses over 70 issues, and includes several major new features and improvements, including:

  • A host of major improvements to SHACL support, including more streamlined initialization, and a major extension of the range of SHACL features supported;
  • Several improvements to the RDF4J Console, including commands to show and edit namespaces;
