Neo4j 2.0 released - A graph browser and query language improvements

I might be wrong, but Neo4j guys seem to go back to making a big announcement in December. It is a big announcement as the version says: Neo4j got a new data browser and Cypher, Neo4j’s graph query language,

The official announcement contains more details about what’s new in Neo4j. There’s also an interview with Michael Hunger on InfoQ about the new version.

Last, there’s also a slidedeck about the changes and improvements in Cypher:


Apache HBase 0.96.0 released after more than 2000 issues resolved

This is a an important release for HBase. Both Hortonworks and Cloudera have posts covering it:

HBase 0.94 has been released over a year and a half ago.

Riak 1.4 - Counters, Improvements to Secondary Indexes

I’ve waited so long to post this, that there’s already a bug fix release. Meet Riak 1.4 featuring

  • Secondary Indexing Improvements: Query results are now sorted and paginated, offering developers much richer semantics
  • Introducing Counters in Riak: Counters, Riak’s first distributed data type, provide automatic conflict resolution after a network partition
  • Reduced Object Storage Overhead: Values and associated metadata are stored and transmitted using a more compact format, reducing disk and network overhead
  • Improved Backpressure: Riak responds with an overload message if a vnode has too many messages in queue

And quite a few other improvements you can learn about from the announcement and from the following video:

If you need a teaser, I can tell you that Riak counters are cool.

Neo4j 1.9 General Availability - Auto-clustering, Cypher, and Some comments

The 1.9 release adds primarily three things:

  1. Auto-Clustering, which makes Neo4j Enterprise clustering more robust & easier to administer, with fewer moving parts
  2. Cypher language improvements make the language more functionally powerful and more performant, and
  3. New welcome pages make learning easier for new users
  1. The first is for the enterprise customers and brings in the features that were initially supported through ZooKeeper
  2. Cypher is Neo4j’s fast evolving query language
  3. The site is brilliant.
  4. The release post is terrible with no links to dive into the newly announced features.

11 Interesting Releases From the First Weeks of January

The list of releases I wanted to post about has been growing fast these last couple of weeks, so instead of waiting leaving it to Here it is (in no particular order1):

  1. (Jan.2nd) Cassandra 1.2 — announcement on DataStax’s blog. I’m currently learning and working on a post looking at what’s new in Cassandra 1.2.
  2. (Jan.10th) Apache Pig 0.10.1 — Hortonworks wrote about it
  3. (Jan.10th) DataStax Community Edition 1.2 and OpsCenter 2.1.3 — DataStax announcement
  4. (Jan.10th) CouchDB 1.0.4, 1.1.2, and 1.2.1 — releases fixing some security vulnerabilities
  5. (Jan.11th) MongoDB 2.3.2 unstable — announcement. This dev release includes support for full text indexing. For more details you can check:

    […] an open source project extending Hadoop and Hive with a collection of useful user-defined-functions. Its aim is to make the Hive Big Data developer more productive, and to enable scalable and robust dataflows.


  1. I’ve tried to order it chronologically, but most probably I’ve failed.

Redis 2.6 Released. Finally

Salvatore Sanfilippo:

Scripting, bitops, and all the big features are good additions but my feeling is that Redis 2.6 is especially significative as a step forward in the maturity of the Redis implementation. This does not mean that’s bug free, it’s new code and we’ll likely discover bugs especially in the early days as with every new release that starts to be adopted more and more.

Redis 2.6 is the release I’ve written about so many times that is tempting to just say finally.
