  RapiderMiner 6  The highly anticipated RapidMiner 6 named RapidMiner studio has been released.  As I'm sure you can tell by my blog, I'm a huge fan of RapidMiner.  It make data mining tasks extremely easy for anyone to learn.  This is made possible by the awesome user interface design which is based on a WYSIWYG editor where you drag and drop process operators in the design view and connect connect the operators through in and out ports that provide a simply and effective way to model the process flow of data.  While these are the primary reasons that I love RapidMiner, they are nothing new.  So lets take a look at the new features added to this awesome application. New logo for a new brand The first thing that I noticed was the changes made on the RapidMiner website.  The website has been completely changed.  The changes include a new logo as well as a new presentation of the application which looks more like a product advertisement than an open source application.  This is because there are now several different versions of the application.  The open source, free community edition,   Here is a list of the different versions from the RapidMiner website.   STARTER Free 1 GB CSV and Excel None Community support Unlimited Download   PERSONAL $999/ yr. 4 GB Common types Open source databases Community support 1 year Buy   FEATURED PROFESSIONAL $2999/ yr. 8 GB Common types All database systems Community support 1 year Buy   ENTERPRISE Ask Unlimited main memory Common types + SPSS, SAS, HDFS All database systems Enterprise support 1 year Contact Us   New features Process templates The new version of RapidMiner Studio contains project templates that provide processes geared toward specific data mining problems. The templates and new tutorials look to be great additions to this already stellar package.  I plan to download a trial of the professional version and write a full review.  Stay tuned!
