OntoWiki 0.9.5 Available

The AKSW research group is pleased to announce that OntoWiki 0.9.5 is now available for download.

OntoWiki is a web-application enabling the collaborative creation and (linked data) publication of RDF knowledge bases.

More information about OntoWiki can be found at http://ontowiki.net. You can download OntoWiki in our google code file section.

Enhancements in this release include:

  • Support for Semantic Pingback, a protocol which enables OntoWiki to communicate named links from linked data resources or blog systems like WordPress.
  • Support for the publication of provenance information via Linked Data.
  • A new navigation module which support the configuration and usage of arbitrary navigation hierarchies (e.g. based on classes, SKOS elements, geospatial entities or FOAF groups).
  • A bookmarklet for collecting RDFa-based information into a specific OntoWiki knowledge base.
  • More editing widgets, e.g. for phone number and mailto: resources.
  • A new mapping module for the resource visualisation and filtering based on maps.
  • Attribute / Tag clouds based on selected RDF properties.
  • A GUI for complex SPARQL filter (contains, larger, smaller, between and bound)
  • A JSON/RPC server as an additional interface (e.g. for the command line client)
  • A plugin to create nice URIs based on the content of a new resource.

A detailed log of the over 200 enhancements and bug fixes of this release is available at our issue tracker.
