      Tika 1.9:

      • The ability to use the cTAKES clinical text
        knowledge extraction system for biomedical data is
        now included as a Tika parser (TIKA-1645, TIKA-1642).
      • Tika-server allows a user to specify the Tika config
        from the command line (TIKA-1652, TIKA-1426).
      • Matlab file detection has been improved (TIKA-1634).
      • The EXIFTool was added as an External parser

        it functional (TIKA-1638).

        org.apache.tika.service.error.warn system property (TIKA-1636).
