Hello,

The current MeSH release at http://mesh.bio2rdf.org/sparql is from
this author [http://thesauri.cs.vu.nl/eswc06/] . The URIs have been
rename to fit into the Bio2RDF URI naming scheme. The current endpoint
is not up to date.

As far as I know, there is no "official" RDF MeSH release.

I'm currently revisiting the RDFizer to make the update more often. I
expect to have a new release of MeSH within a week or two.

I will submit the new endpoint to the community for validation since
there might be some predicate, type and structure changes in the
version I'm working on.

Marc-Alexandre
