We are very excited to announce the release of AgensGraph v1.1. It includes both new features and many useful improvements. Since we released AgensGraph v1.0, our team has been hard at work researching and building the best AgensGraph solution for database over the past two months. With improved features and upgraded performance, AgensGraph makes it easier for you to manage, analyze and store your data.
Let’s take a look at the new features and improvements:
MERGE Clause The MERGE specification is a convenient way to verify specific patterns in a graph. If there is no such pattern, AgensGraph creates the specified pattern automatically. Users can also define the additional behaviors using ON MATCH and ON CREATE optional clauses.
Variable Length Edge Pattern Queries AgensGraph v1.1 is twice as fast as the previous version (v1.0). Using variable length edge pattern is a concise way to specify degrees of relationships between entities such as finding friends of a friend. This is one of the reasons why users choose graph database over relational database.
External modules In AgensGraph v1.1, two external modules have been added: Hadoop FDW and HyperLogLog datatype.
Hadoop FDW is a foreign data wrapper which connects HIVE systems to access HDFS files in AgensGraph. Using Hadoop FDW, the data residing in Hadoop can be easily imported into AgensGraph.
AgensGraph v1.1 is a minor release but contains major improvements. There will be more features and modules introduced in the coming months. We will update you accordingly. Please visit AgensGraph v1.1 Release for more detailed information.
