We are pleased to announce the release of BioPortal 3.6. This was mostly a
bug-fix release but there was one major new feature:

*	Created "alternate entry points" for BioPortal. These URL's limit
the ontologies that are visible in BioPortal, allowing users to focus on a
shared, smaller set of ontologies. The entry points which are currently
available are: *

*	OBO-Foundry:
http://obo-foundry.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	Unified Medical Language Systems:
http://umls.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid:
http://cabig.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	Clinical and Translational Science Awards:
http://ctsa.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	CTSA Health Ontology Mapper:
http://ctsa-hom.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	Proteomics Standards Initiative:
http://psi.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	WHO Family of International Classifications:
http://who-fic.bioportal.bioontology.org
*	Consultative Group on Intl Agricultural Research:
http://cgiar.bioportal.bioontology.org

Please contact us on the support mailing list if you would like us to
configure an entry point for another set of ontologies.

*	Major Updates and Fixes

*	Updated the ontologies used by the Annotator Web Services.
Previously the ontology versions used by Annotator were out of date by
several months and new ontologies were not available at all for
annotation. *
*	Improved the reliability and robustness of the parsing of OWL 2
ontologies *

* This item was requested via the User Support mailing list
<https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/listinfo/bioontology-support>  and
the NCBO User Group <http://www.bioontology.org/BioPortal-user-group> .
Thank you for your comments and suggestions!

Ray
