Version 1.9 of schema.org has just been posted. See
http://schema.org/docs/releases.html#v1.9 for details, and (as usual)
Github [1] for the exact details.

This version introduces changes proposed by the Bib Extend group for
describing periodicals, alongside a 'work to work' property,
'workExample' (and an inverse); also a new convenience inverse
property for 'isPartOf' called 'hasPart'. Many many thanks to all who
contributed to those discussions, here and on the Bib Extend group's
list. In particular thanks to Richard Wallis for chairing it all
through to a rough consensus, and to Dan Scott for having an
implementation ready to deploy on Github.

The 1.9 update also addresses the recently discussed Seller/Provider
issue, see the releases overview document for background links and
details on the various changes this involves.

Aside from vocabulary changes, this update also improves the
presentation of 'supercededBy' metadata on the site, making it
navigable from per-term pages and allowing for a property to supercede
multiple earlier properties.

We have also updated the terms of service document -
http://schema.org/docs/terms.html - noting that Yandex is now a
schema.org Sponsor and adopting the patent terms used by W3C.

Finally, the errors in the RDF a dump are fixed, and we have a QA test
to help ensure that such glitches don't occur again.[3]

Thanks everyone :)

Dan, for schema.org.
