Update on Neo4j Ruby bindings

During 2010 there’s been two releases of the Neo4j.rb JRuby bindings for the Neo4j graph database so far. Time to catch up with what’s new!

Version 0.4.0 of Neo4j.rb came with improved traversal performance, more options on how to use relationships, for instance relationships can now be indexed. Version 0.4.1 gave us migrations and access to a batch inserter for big import-once data volumes.

In the last days of 2009, neo4jr-simple was first released. It’s a simple ready to go wrapper for Neo4j and currently in version 0.2.1. Make sure to check out the neo4jr-social example application as well!

Great thanks to Andreas Ronge, Matthew Deiters and all the other contributors for the awesome stuff!
