Subject: [protege-releases] Protege 3.5 Release
To: protege-releases@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (04)
We are pleased to announce that Protege 3.5 has moved from beta to
release status. (05)
Download link for registered users: (06)
New users, please register before downloading: (08)
A detailed release announcement with important installation notes is
available on the Protege wiki: (010)
- Dialogs are now centered in the main window.
- System slots can now be selected for export to CSV in the Query Tab.
- Fixed a bug that prevented the Finish button from being enabled when
creating a database project. (013)
- The Protege native writer export is now done in a more efficient way
on the server, when running in client-server mode. The performance
increase should be significant, especially on slow networks.
- Fixed a bug in the Protege native writer that prevented some untyped
resources from being exported. (014)
The SWRLTab now supports the Drools rule engine. A new tab called the
SWRLDroolsTab provides a graphical interface for interacting with this
implementation. The existing SWRLJessTab is still available. All
existing SWRL built-in libraries are supported in the Drools
implementation. Both the Drools and Jess implementations now use a
pair of OWL 2 RL-based reasoners for performing inference (read more).
These reasoners are also used by the SQWRL query language. The Java
APIs provided by the SWRLTab have changed slightly so users of these
APIs will need to update their code. Information on these changes can
be found here. The process of building the SWRLTab and its associated
rule engines has also changed. The new build process is outlined here. (015)
BioPortal Import Plug-in
Made significant enhancements to the BioPortal Import Plug-in: (016)
- Users may now search for terms in all BioPortal ontologies, and
navigate to a specific BioPortal ontology to import branches of the
- Added the ability to start multiple import processes at the same time.
- Importing is now done in separate threads, and can be canceled at
any time by the user.
- Added a progress dialog to show import progress.
- Users may now specify a BioPortal API Key in the BioPortal
Configuration dialog (accessible from BioPortal | Configure... |
General). This allows access to private ontologies for which users
have an API Key. (017)
Users may now add the collab.precache.notes.count property to the
protege.properties file for controlling whether or not ontology notes
are precached. If set to false, no precaching is done. This improves
the start up time of Protege clients for projects that have large
numbers of notes. Read more about Collaborative Protege. (018)
Added Java utilities for exporting changes and notes as CSV files.
Source code and export scripts are available in our Subversion
