Search results render faster if they contain Person results
Indexing time has been improved
Full handling of TDB type conversions, preventing isomorphic test failures that result in reloading filegraph on restart
Graph URIs are now cached for triple stores using a Jena implementation - this is a significant difference for TDB triple stores
Updating data via the UI is faster
