The OWL Working Group [1] has published [2] six new Working Drafts of
its current design of OWL 2 (formerly called OWL 1.1).  If the evolution
of OWL is important to you, please read the drafts and send any comments
to public-owl-comments@w3.org by 11 May.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-semantics
   http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-mapping-to-rdf
   http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-xml-serialization
   http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-profiles
   http://www.w3.org/TR/owl2-primer

The first three are unchanged since the January editions, except for the
name change.  The second three are new.

There are still many open issues [3], so there will more drafts in the
future.  If your interest is only slight, you may want to postpone your
review until all the issues are closed and the Last Call drafts are
published.  (They will be announced here and on the w3.org front page.)

The readers of this list might be particularly interested in the OWL-R
profile, which aims to be an implementable subset of OWL Full.  The
Primer is also (IMHO) an excellent way to get started with OWL.

Thanks!
