The 3.2.0 release introduces experimental support for clustering Korean
and Arabic content, adds a command-line batch processing application,
updates cluster visualization and removes LGPL-licensed dependencies.
Experimental support for Arabic and Korean
Release 3.2.0 introduces experimental support for clustering content
in Arabic and Korean. Arabic and Korean content is supported across
all Carrot2 components as well as in Carrot2 Java API. Please note
that Carrot2 user interfaces still use Left To Right layouts.
Command-line application for batch clustering
Release 3.2.0 introduces a simple command-line application which
performs Carrot2 clustering on one or more files in the Carrot2 XML
format and saves the results as XML or JSON. Apart from clustering
large number of documents sets at one time, you can use the this
application to integrate Carrot2 with your non-Java applications.
Significant updates in the Circles visualization
The Circles cluster visualization has been significantly improved, including much clearer label rendering, multiple selection support and smoother animation.
For fully customizable Flash binaries of this visualization,
including color schemes and logos, please contact Carrot Search.
LGPL-licensed dependencies removed
All Carrot2's LGPL dependencies have been replaced with non-LGPL substitutes or made optional.
Document Clustering Workbench performance improvements
Version 3.2.0 brings a number of improvements to the Document
Clustering Workbench, including better performance of the results
editor for large numbers of documents.
