Hi all,

we are happy to announce the release of version 1.0 of the RelFinder.

The RelFinder is a tool that extracts and visualizes relationships 
between given objects in Semantic Web datasets and makes these 
relationships interactively explorable.
It advances the idea of the DBpedia Relationship Finder by offering 
improved visualization and exploration techniques and working with any 
dataset that provides SPARQL access. Some key features are:

- relationships even between more than two given objects (all visualized 
in one 'relationship graph')
- easy configurability of the accessed dataset and search parameters 
(via settings menu or config file)
- aggregations and global filters (based on relationship length, class, 
link type, connectivity)
- highly interactive visualization (highlighting, red thread, pick&pin, 
details on demand, animations)

The RelFinder is implemented in Adobe Flex and requires only a 
Webbrowser with installed Flash Player. Give it a try at 
http://relfinder.semanticweb.org and discover relationships that you 
have not been aware of before ;-)

Thanks go to Jens Lehmann, Jürgen Ziegler, Lena Tetzlaff, Laurent 
Alquier & Sebastian Hellmann.

Best regards,
Philipp, Timo & Steffen
