This is a significant new release of BrightstarDB. The most important changes are:
- The BrightstarDB WCF service has been removed and replaced with a RESTful service implemented using the Nancy framework. The new service still supports running as a Windows Service or under IIS but also supports several other configurations.
- As a result of the removal of WCF, the http, namedpipe and tcp conntection types are no longer supported in BrightstarDB connection strings. Instead a connection type of 'rest' is used to connect.
- A Mono build has been added.
- BrightstarDB's higher-level APIs now support connecting to other RDF stores. This means that you can use our Entity Framework and LINQ support to query other RDF stores as well as any SPARQL 1.1 endpoint that supports SPARQL 1.1 Query and SPARQL 1.1 Update.
