I'm glad to announce the release of IsaViz 2.0, which can be downloaded
at [1].

IsaViz is a visual environment for browsing and authoring RDF models
represented as graphs. It features:
* a 2.5D user interface allowing smooth zooming and navigation in the graph
* creation and editing of graphs by drawing ellipses, boxes and arcs
* RDF/XML, Notation 3 and N-Triple import
* RDF/XML, Notation 3 and N-Triple export, but also SVG and PNG export


Version 2.0 supports GSS [2], an RDF-based stylesheet language derived
from CSS and SVG for rendering RDF models represented as node-link
diagrams. IsaViz 2.0 is based on Jena 2 beta 1 which supports the RDF
Core Working Group's Last Call Working Drafts [3], including datatypes.


Other changes include :
* Better support for namespace prefix bindings
* An import/export plug-in interface featuring automatic detection (used
by the Sesame plug-in [4])
* Faster XML processing using Xerces 2.2
* New navigation panel and keyboard shortcuts
* Bug Fixes

A complete list a changes is also available [5].
