Version 4.0 of TerminusDB - the Star’s End Release - is a big step forward in solidifying and extending the functionality of TerminusDB and TerminusHub.
With this release TerminusDB takes a significant step towards our vision of a general-purpose tool for data & content management and collaboration.
TerminusDB 4.0 extends the revision control features to allow greater visibility and reproducability by allowing you to look inside individual commits to see what changes were made. Provenance, lineage, and compliance are increasingly essential in the management of data and content.
The major additional features are:
- Model Building Tool. The database ships with an integrated visual schema building tool. It lets you visually design knowledge graphs. Like everything in TerminusDB, the data models are versioned so you can make changes in testing and if it breaks your database, you can easily roll back to an earlier working version. You can also share your models/schemas through TerminusHub.
- Document Editor. TerminusDB 4.0 has full surfability, clickability and editability of database documents through the console. It is a wiki or catalogue of all your data that you can edit in place. This is the beginning of the TerminusDB content management system, which we will be expanding over the coming months.
- CSV Manager. With a single click, you can now build a database from a CSV or a group of CSVs. We have tried to make it as simple as possible for users to interact with the CSV tooling and versioning.
- Command Line Interface – now ships with a Git-like CLI.
