Hi All

I have just made a major overhaul to the types and profiles. This affects the status of current and draft types and profiles. The changes are summarised at the end of this email. The timing of the push over the weekend is due to the ELIXIR All Hands Meeting in Lisbon starting tomorrow.

The main reason for the major overhaul is to provide us with a clean story to those looking to engage with Bioschemas, and simplifies things for us. Some types and profiles have been moved from current to draft. This was mainly when the current version was inconsistent with the work we have been doing preparing types for schema.org<http://schema.org> integration. Our intention is it speed up the development on the remaining types and push these up to schema.org<http://schema.org> in the coming months and certainly before the BioHackathon in November. We also want to revise the rest of the profiles to be consistent with the types that we are proposing and to have example deployments of them.

A summary of the changes is included at the end of this message. We welcome comments from the community and thank everyone who has been helping to develop the types and profiles.

Best Regards


Types Page
The types page only contain those types that we are pushing towards schema.org<http://schema.org> in the first release. These have been updated to be the same as those on the appspot development site.

Draft Types Page
The draft types page includes all the types that we have been working on. Those that do not have a June date still need to be updated with the version from the appspot development site, unfortunately this is a manual process and requires some more time to be fully followed through.

Profiles Page
The profiles page only contains those profiles that are over a stable schema.org<http://schema.org> type, one of the types that we are currently pushing into schema.org<http://schema.org>, or has been widely deployed (e.g. Sample).

Profiles over the new types, e.g. ChemicalSubstance, Gene, and Protein, are not on there at this point since we need to either test these still with actual deployments/examples or update their profile description to the latest version of the type.

Draft Profiles Page
Includes the latest version of all profiles that are in development.
