we are pleased to announce that Semantic MediaWiki has been presented at th=
European Semantic Web Conference last week and won the "Best Poster=20
Award" (it was accidently not registered as a demo but as a poster, but=20
anyway ...). This award is the result of the critical (;-) votes of the=20
present audience of practicioners from the community, and so we are=20
especially happy to have received it.
Thank you all for your interest and support. The practical usage of SMW on=
real sites helps us a lot to improve the quality of the implementation.
Unfortunatelly, we are still living without a repository (waiting to get th=
logins for MediaWiki SVN), but development is continued behind the scenes. =
looks like improved stability/code quality, some enhancements in inline=20
queries, and cleaner/more powerful datatype handling will be the main=20
features of the upcoming SMW 0.5. The next release is scheduled for July 12.
