Announcement:

The Apache OpenNLP team is pleased to announce the release of version 1.6.0 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 1.6.0 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 introduces many new features, improvements and bug fixes. The API
has been improved for a better consistency and 1.4 deprecated methods were
removed. Now Java 1.7 is required.

Additionally the release contains the following noteworthy changes:

  •  Added evalutation support to the parser and doccat components
  • Added support to Evalita 07/09, Brat and OntoNotes corpus formats

  • Now L-BFGS is stable

  • Added Snowball to the Stemmer package

  • NameFinder now supports a user defined factory

  • Added pluggable machine learning support

  • Added a lemmatizer module

  • Added Cluster, Document Begin and Clark feature generators to the Name Finder
