After months of hard work, we are excited to release Carbon LDP™ version 5! New support for enterprise-class databases and clustering, among other features, make this our most significant release to date and the first to be relevant for companies of all sizes.
Now with support for Stardog and GraphDB™
Our new release is now available in two license tiers. The Standard edition is still free, provides all features using a local file system database, and is suitable for development and small-business apps. The new Enterprise edition now provides support for the Stardog Enterprise Knowledge Graph Platform and external RDF4J repositories such as Ontotext’s GraphDB™.
Other new features available in version 5 include:
When using an external database you can now configure a Carbon LDP cluster to scale. A cluster is one or more Carbon LDP server nodes behind a load balancer. Nodes can be added or removed from the cluster without affecting availability.
Carbon-specific properties will never conflict with properties in your data since now all Carbon properties have been namespaced in the SDK. Carbon-specific properties are now prefixed in the SDK with the $ symbol (e.g. document.$id ).
In addition to these new features, a host of additional improvements and optimizations have been made – making Carbon LDP v5 more powerful and performant than ever before.
Carbon LDP is the system we’ve always wanted, so we built it. We can’t wait to help you discover what amazing new solutions you can build. Learn how to obtain and use the free Standard edition right away with our Quick start guide and dive deeper with the product documentation.
