From the post:
Our engineers have been working hard to make OrientDB even better and we’re now ready to share it with you! We’re pleased to announce OrientDB 2.2 Beta. We’re really proud of this release as it includes multiple enhancements in both the Community Edition and the the Enterprise Edition. Please note that this is still a beta release, so the software and documentation still have some rough edges to iron out.
We’ve focused on five main themes for this release: Security, Operations, Performance, APIs and Teleporter.
Security for us is paramount as customers are storing their valuable, critical and confidential data in OrientDB. With improved auditing and authentication, password salt and data-at-rest encryption, OrientDB is now one of the most secure DBMSs ever.
Our users have been asking for incremental backup, so we delivered. Now it’s ready to be tested! That’s not the only addition to version 2.2, as the new OrientDB Studio now replaces the workbench, adding a new architecture and new modules.
We’ve done multiple optimizations to the core engine and, in many cases, performance increased tenfold. Our distributed capabilities are also constantly improving and we’ve introduced fast-resync of nodes. This release supports the new configurable Graph Consistency to speed-up change operations against graphs.
“SQL is the English of databases” and we’re constantly improving our SQL access layer to simplify graph operations. New additions include Pattern Matching, Command Cache, Automated Parallel Queries and Live Query graduating from experimental to stable. OrientJS, the official Node driver, now supports native unmarshalling.
You may have heard rumors about a new, easy way to convert your relational databases to OrientDB. It’s time to formally release Teleporter: a new tool to sync with other databases and simplify migrations to OrientDB.
With the FBI attempting to enslave Apple to breach the security of all iPhones, I have to ask if the security features of OrientDB are FBI upgrade secure?
Same question applies to other software as well. OrientDB happens to be the first software release I have seen since the FBI decided it can press gang software vendors to subvert their own software security.
Thoughts on how to protect systems from upgrade removal of security measures?
Unlike the fictional terrorists being pursued by the FBI (ask the TSA, not one terrorist has been seen at a USA airport in the 5277 days since 9/11), the FBI poses a clear and present danger to the American public.
Tim Cook (Apple) and others should stop conceding the terrorist issue to the FBI. It just encourages their delusion to the detriment of us all.
