Hi all,

We have just released a new version of the following documents in the 
OWL 1.1 specification:

    - Mapping to RDF graphs
    - Structural Specification
    - Semantics
    - XML syntax

 The most important changes concern the Mapping to RDF graphs. This 
document now specifies a transformation from OWL 1.1 functional-style syntax
to RDF which comprises the full language (including punning and 
annotations on axioms). This document also specifies a transformation 
from RDF to
OWL 1.1 functional-style syntax and determines the conditions under 
which an RDF document is valid OWL 1.1

The changes in the structural specification document are minor:
     - owl:imports is no longer considered as an ontology annotation, 
but as a separate construct
      - inverses of object properties are now also available as object 
property axioms (as in OWL DL). This change is motivated by backwards 
compatibility with OWL DL. Note that inverses are also available as an 
object property expression.

The remaining documents have been updated accordingly.


Cheers

Bernardo
