Greetings,

Semedia ( http://semedia.deit.univpm.it ) is pleased to announce the 
DBin 0.4 "Barbera" release. ( http://www.dbin.org )
DBin is a platform enabling "Semantic Web Communities", that is, 
communities of people who want to create and share semantically 
structured knowledge bases about topics of common interest. (e.g. might 
be "all about a specific research topic", "Italian Opera", "Vegetarian 
cooking", "Pubs around the WWW2006 site" etc..)


    The following screendemo (just a few minutes long) shows DBin in 
action and explains the main concepts:

DBin 0.4 "Barbera" release introduces features such as:

* Geotagging and Geobrowsing based on our GMaps and GEarth Eclipse 
Plugins. GEarth is embedded directly in the rich client interface while 
GEarth is controlled real time (Great with multiple monitors setup)
DBin now can be used for plenty of geotagged based use cases ranging 
from earth quakes studies, disaster management, wildlife tracking, 
architecture and urbanistic, ecommerce, ufology..  :-) 

* Semantic Query driven browser component can be used in brainlets for a 
variety of purposes

* P2P: Much improved knowledge exchange algorithms, more stable and up 
to 5 times faster

* Semantics:    Increased OWL support in both the editing and the 
viewing interface

* User Interface:  New Look! (Modern SWT), Minimizes to tray icon, 
property view shows property definitions (when
available in the ontology) and "zooms" on complex literals, New quick 
menu buttons to perform specific actions

* Information filtering: New filtering policies based on revocations, 
Digital user identity (private and public keys) can be stored locally 
and reused in later DBin installations.

* Network: Socks 5 Proxy Support, support for intranet based Knowledge 
exchange servers


DBin is an Open Source project and looks forward to development/research 
and project proposal cooperations.
For those attending WWW2006, we'll be presenting at dev day, semantic 
web track, so see you there :-)

Giovanni Tummarello,
on behalf of the DBin development team
