Relativity 8 includes several back-end structural improvements to optimize system performance and search speed. Response times and data import are improved, and doc-to-doc loads are up to four times faster, with a 60 percent reduction in CPU utilization. A new dtSearch agent and distributed indexes can result in a 70 percent reduction in build times and searching that’s up to 20 times faster. Additionally, search terms reports will now cache the results from previous runs to complete subsequent updates more quickly.
Relativity Analytics now includes email threading to automatically identify and organize emails that were part of a single conversation. It’s easy to identify the most inclusive documents for review and cut down on time spent reviewing redundant messages, while intuitive email visualization using reply, forward, reply all, and file type icons make it easy to navigate a thread. Also new to Analytics is near-duplicate detection, language identification, and repeated content filters to eliminate recurring content like footers, improving the quality of your search results.To learn more about Relativity Analytics, click here.
Relativity Assisted Review is even more flexible. You can now use previously coded documents as a seed set to jumpstart a project, make use of a control set to validate your results, and view new reports that calculate precision, recall, and F1. Assisted Review is also easier to use for case or project managers, with a redesigned home page, automatic creation of saved searches that drive the workflow, and real-time status bars that provide visual indications of your progress. Additionally, you can prioritize issues, calculate sample size, and have Assisted Review automatically batch out documents for review.

A new Favorites drop-down menu helps you quickly navigate to your most visited or recent pages within Relativity, much like a web browser. An updated native file viewer improves rendering for common file types.
Relativity 8 also makes creating and working with redactions more intuitive. New functionality includes multiple highlight colors and more redaction types, such as borderless white box, full-page, and inverse redactions. Relativity’s new tokenless two-factor authentication and improved Active Directory integration provide more options for secure access.
Major improvements to Relativity Processing include the ability to process EnCase Logical Evidence Files (L01) directly and a new password bank to help you store passwords and security files—such as LotusNotes IDs and digital certificates—to automatically unlock files for processing and imaging. We've also added an auto-publish feature, so you can process records directly into your review workspace in one quick step.To learn more about Relativity Processing, click here.
Relativity is a platform that allows litigation support professionals, independent consultants, and third-party software providers to design, build, and integrate applications to extend its functionality. In Relativity 8, we focused on continuing to make life easier for developers.Updates to the platform include:
By unifying the API interfaces for event handlers, agents, and custom pages, you will have a more consistent experience developing in Relativity.
Pre- and post-install event handlers allow you to modify a workspace before and after an application is installed, eliminating the need to write custom installers to handle the logic.
Applications now live in separate AppDomains, allowing applications built on different versions of third-party vendor assemblies to work together without conflict.
