Parallel loops

RapidMiner now features new parallel Loop operators which run multiple iterations at once, making full use of your available CPU cores (up to the limits of your RapidMiner license) which greatly speeds up your processes.

  • New parallelized Loop operator.
  • New parallelized Loop Values operator.
  • New parallelized Loop Attributes operator.
  • New parallelized Loop Files operator.

Please note that already existing processes will still use these old operators for compatibility reasons! To make use of the new operator within such processes, you need to manually replace the existing operators with the new ones.

Order your Repository

The Repository panel now allows to switch between alphanumeric and chronological order.

Granting Additional Permissions to Extensions

Users with Large licenses can now grant additional permissions to unsigned extensions. This is done through a toggle in the Start-up section of the Settings dialog. These permissions are not enabled by default, because they increase the security risk by allowing unknown software to be run in your system.
