Subject: [Tabulator] Tabulator Firefox Extension Alpha


Today I am pleased to announce an alpha release of the Tabulator Firefox


Based on code from the original Tabulator web application, the Tabulator
Extension integrates the ability to browse linked data directly into  
After installing the extension, pages served as application/rdf+xml  
and text/n3
will be automatically loaded into a Tabulator outline view for easy  
browsing.  A
  single store contains all of the data found during a Firefox  
session, smushing
the data from all loaded documents together as you continue to browse.
Queries can then be generated across the entire store in the same way  
as the
original Tabulator web application.

New in this version is the ability to directly edit files in real  
time through
the outline interface.  This feature is still largely in testing (it  
the user to enter values that should not be valid in many cases), but  
it is a
very powerful interface for quickly editing RDF.  A testing  
environment for
editing has been set up at http://dig.csail.mit.edu/2007/wiki/ .

Since the Tabulator Extension is still in its early stages, we would  
as much feedback as possible.  The issue tracker for the Tabulator  
project is
located at http://dig.csail.mit.edu/issues/tabulator/ .  Also, a page  
for more
general discussion has been created on the ESW Wiki at
http://esw.w3.org/topic/TabulatorExtension .  Finally, feel free to send
questions directly to the Tabulator team at tabulator@csail.mit.edu .
