As per recent discussions on the SIOC developers mailing list and
requests from many parties requesting clarification of the term
sioc:User (which has oft been confused with foaf:Person), we are happy
to announce that the new term sioc:UserAccount  has been added to the
ontology in replacement of the now-deprecated sioc:User term (in
revision 1.35 of the SIOC ontology).

The SIOC specification has been updated accordingly, and knock-on
effects to SIOC modules have been corrected.


*We would ask all application maintainers to update your code to
reflect this change, i.e., replace User with the new term
UserAccount.*

Also, you should take this opportunity to change foaf:holdsAccount to
foaf:account /via @danbri


We have updated the various figures showing the connections internally
between SIOC terms, and also between SIOC, FOAF and SKOS.
