OWL 2, a compatible extension to OWL 1, is now a W3C Candidate
Recommendation.  This means that if you are a developer of an OWL
system, it may be a good time to start adopting OWL 2.  The design is
not likely to change now, and this is the time to tell us about any
problems that come up during implementation.  Also, the primer, quick
reference, and new features document, (which are non-normative documents
intended to help people understand OWL) are now at Last Call, indicating
we think they are essentially done.

A good place to start is the OWL 2 Document Overview:


It gives a brief overview of OWL2, and offers a guide to each of the
other OWL 2 documents.  We'll be tracking what we know of
implementations here:


Please send implementation reports and any other comments to
public-owl-comments@w3.org by 30 July.  Soon after that, we expect to
proceed to Proposed Recommendation and Recommendation.  Discussion
among OWL developers is welcome at public-owl-dev@w3.org.
