OpenLink Software is pleased to announce a new release of Virtuoso,
Open-Source Edition, version 5.0.7.

This release includes:

New: fully operational Native Graph Model Storage Providers for the Jena &
Sesame Frameworks.

- Better support for alternate RDF indexing schemes
- Parallelization of RDF sponger operations across multiple RDF
data-sources concurrently
- New Sponger Cartridges and enhancements to the existing Cartridge collection
- Inference engine optimizations for subclass and subproperty that
efficiently handle taxonomies numbering tens of thousands of classes.
- OWL equivalentClass and equivalentProperty inference support.
- Dynamic handling of host component of IRIs; host component is now
flexible enough to painlessly handle multiple homing of domains and host
name component changes; no duplicate host name data storage required
via [URIQA] section of INI
- SPARQL optimizations to improve LIMIT and  OFFSET handling
- JDBC driver has new connect options, smaller memory footprint and
optimized batch support
- ODS applications now support SyncML

Documentation Additions:
- How to read query plans and how to use the key performance meters
- How to diagnose SPARQL queries and how to decide what indexing scheme is
right for each RDF use case
- How to debug RDF views
- Better Documentation on SPARQL extensions and options
- An updated RDF View example based on the Northwind demonstration database
that reflects underlying enhancements

Bug Fixes:
- Generally improved safety of built-in functions, better argument checking.
