Cypher 1.2 Release, and Cypher Web Service

I'd like to announce the 1.2 release of Cypher and the availability of an updated user guide. This release is also accompanied by the release of Cypher Web Service, which allows Cypher to run as a RESTful web service. A public demo of the web service is available.

Below is the change log:

feature enhancements since 1.1.8
- added report.xml file which is reported when cypher.report.html is true, file contains an xml version of the report in report.csv
- added cypher.report.html.refresh to control refresh time in HTML interface
- added cypher.input.files to control whether cypher.input.dir directory will be crawled
- added cypher.output.commit to control if RDF output will be loaded into cypher.repository.output
- added cypher.output.format to specify serialization for RDF output
- added cypher.http.base used for namespace of minted URIs and also the URL of the Cypher web service

#1 in SPARQL Software, LOL!

I was looking at the traffic logs for monrai.com, and saw quite a few vistors from the Google results for sparql software, so I took a look. Turns out, my site is the first result, as well as in the other first few results. My question is, how did that happen?? I also took a look at Google Trends for these search terms, but there isn't enough data on them to show up on its radar.

I don't really know a lot about SEO, but something I did must have worked, because there are so many other projects, software, etc that are far more popular than Cypher, Cyparkler, etc. I would tell you to just Google sparql software, but... :) Just goes to show, that Google page ranking isn't 100% accurate 100% of the time.

Here's a few of the (truly) most popular:
Openlink Virtuoso
Sesame
Redland
Jena
Longwell
