ANN: GoodRelations Service Update 2009-05-05 - Please refresh your caches!

Dear all:
We just released a service update of the GoodRelations ontology for
e-commerce.

The ontology is available at

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1

If you want to explicitly fetch the OWL file or the HTML documentation,
you may also use

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1.owl

or

http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1.html

Please replace all local copies of GoodRelations by this new file.

The service update is designed to be fully backwards-compatible. Only a
few changes may require small modifications of current applications or
data sets. Those few potentially incompatible changes are as follows:

- gr:description is now deprecated; we suggest using rdfs:comment instead.
- gr:isListPrice is now deprecated and replaced by the more powerful
gr:priceType property.

The remaining changes are vocabulary extensions or improvements that
help increase the compatibility with Semantic Web applications. For
example, we
- changed cardinality recommendations for opening hours and business
functions, which simplifies the usage of GoodRelations in RDFa;
- added PayPal as a payment method, and
- added labels to all elements.

A complete change log is at

A big thank you for the many valuable suggestions for improvement!

Best

Martin
