RDF4J 3.7.0 Released

Thu, May 27, 2021

We are pleased to announce that RDF4J 3.7.0 is now available. This is a minor release with about 22 improvements and bug fixes.

For full details, have a look at the release notes. Below, we briefly summarize some of the highlights.

Improved SPARQL query rendering

The support for rendering a query algebra back into a SPARQL query string has been extended, now supporting BIND clauses correctly. In addition, an experimental alternative implementation has been added, which has improved support for path expression handling, among a few other things.

Support for newline-delimited JSON-LD

We have added support for newline-delimited JSON-LD (inspired by NDJSON ). See issue GH-2840 for details.

RDF-star support updates

Various small improvements in RDF-star support have been done in order to align with the current published draft. In particular, the Turtle-star parser has been extended to support annotation syntax.
