Dear all,

We released Comunica 1.3.0,
a new version of our modular framework
for querying Linked Data on the Web.
With Comunica, you can execute queries over
(federations of) TPF interfaces, LD documents, SPARQL endpoints.

Try it in your browser with our new Web client:

Next to querying using SPARQL queries,
it is now also possible to use GraphQL queries [1].
This opens up the Linked Open Data cloud to GraphQL developers
without having to build proxies over existing server interfaces.

Additionally, we now also fully support Memento's datetime negotiation [2],
which allows for time-travel queries over different dataset versions to be done.

We also support easy programmatic configuration of RDFJS-based sources [3],
as defined by the W3C community group [4].
This allows for all RDFJS-compatible source implementations
to be plugged in Comunica directly, and allowing querying over them.

Finally, Comunica now also fully supports SPARQL path expressions,
which brings us a step closer towards full SPARQL 1.1 compliance.
