The FOL RuleML <http://www.ruleml.org/fol> language has been
released as a result of the collaboration between the RuleML
Steering Committee <http://www.ruleml.org/#Structure> and the
Joint Committee <http://www.daml.org/committee>, with input
from SCL <http://philebus.tamu.edu/mailman/listinfo/scl>:

http://www.ruleml.org/#FOL

FOL RuleML shares/reuses much of the earlier RuleML LP syntax,
incorporating First-Order-Logic quantifiers and disjunctions
as well as equivalence and negation. The language adheres to
a strict separation of declarative content from procedural
(Assert, Query) performatives, as pioneered by KQML. This and
further changes to RuleML 0.87 <http://www.ruleml.org/0.87>
will also benefit other sublanguages towards RuleML 0.9, in
particular the Horn logic subset.

FOL RuleML is providing the rule component for the parallel
SWRL FOL release <http://www.daml.org/2004/11/fol> and is a
proposed FOL content language for SWSI <http://www.swsi.org>.
It can be regarded as a generalization of SWRL FOL in that it
provides markup for full FOL, with n-ary relations (predicate
symbols) and n-ary constructors (logical function symbols).
