Announcement:

The Apache OpenNLP team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.5.3 of Apache OpenNLP.

The Apache OpenNLP library is a machine learning based toolkit for the processing of natural language text.
It supports the most common NLP tasks, such as tokenization, sentence segmentation, part-of-speech tagging,
named entity extraction, chunking, parsing, and coreference resolution.

The OpenNLP 1.5.3 binary and source distributions are available for download from our download page:http://opennlp.apache.org/cgi-bin/download.cgi

The OpenNLP library is distributed by Maven Central as well. See the Maven Dependency page for more details:http://opennlp.apache.org/maven-dependency.html

This release contains a couple of new features, improvements and bug fixes. The CLI
has been improved for a better consistency. Now the tools supports extensions that
can be configured from the model, including customized context generators and
validators.

Additionally the release contains the following noteworthy changes:

  • Porter Stemmer tool
  • L-BFGS parameter estimation
  • Improved documentation
  • Fine-grained POSTagger evaluation report
