Semantic MediaWiki Extensions 0.7 released

The Semantic MediaWiki extension for MediaWiki [1] has just been released in version 0.7. Core changes include:

  • New special pages for searching and browsing data, in particular Special:Browse. These replace the old Special:SearchTriple.
  • Additional options for formatting results of inline queries supporting templates, transclusion of result pages, and counting of results.
  • New datatype for enumerated string values.
  • Maintenance script for updating the semantic database, e.g. after importing text-only data.
  • And a large number of smaller fixes and improvements.

SMW 0.7 runs on the current MediaWiki 1.9 and upcoming 1.10. Online documenation [2] still has to be updated to describe all new functions in detail. Development and usage is discussed on our mailinglists [3].
