[PDF]  D. Greene, "A State-of-the-Art Toolkit for Document Clustering", PhD Thesis, University of Dublin, Trinity College, 2007.

This work provided a new framework supporting the development of applications for exploratory text mining tasks. As well as allowing researchers to apply popular learning algorithms to large document collections, the framework introduced a variety of novel data analysis procedures based on kernel learning, cluster ensembles, and matrix decomposition methods.
