Version 2.3 of the DataCleaner
app for analysing, profiling, transforming and cleansing data, has
been released. DataCleaner 2.3 includes a Character set
distribution analyser for users working with data that has
different character sets in the data, and a Transliterate

Rickard Öberg Joins Rod Johnson at Neo

Rickard Öberg has announced that he will join Neo Technology, the company behind the
Neo4j graph database.

“What I like about Neo Technology is the focus on Enterprise
NOSQL, meaning not only do they provide a good quality product that
covers a wide range of use cases, but they also have a great team
that provide support in the field, to understand customer needs,
and to provide developers with the tools they need to run it in an
enterprise environment. This is where I think NOSQL solutions will
be “sorted out” in the next round, and I intend to help Neo4j
become the best in this,” he said.

Öberg’s work will initially focus on providing support for the
community, and addressing bugs. He joins Rod Johnson, founder and
former CEO of SpringSource, who joined the company’s board earlier
this month.

directly. In addition, the RuleChain rule allows ordering of
TestRules, and there is a list of bug fixes, available at the
Release Notes.
