Dear Members,


Recently we have published an updated release of the Fluent Editor 2014 with
few new great features many of you have requested so far. We want to make
ontology development even easier and pleasant task! With new Fluent Editor
you can instantly visualize your ontologies, better inspect ontology
ecosystem with references, trace down SWRL rules and simulate server
behaviour. Here's what's new:

Ontology Diagrams

*         Rereference Diagrams

*         Reference Explorer

*         SWRL Debugger

*         Active Rules emulator

*         Proxy Configuration

*         Performance improvements


***Ontology Diagrams***

R3 comes with a whole new functionality to visually represent ontology
within the diagram. With one click User may display an interactive diagram
of the edited ontology. Moreover User may materialize the ontology (using
selected materialization profile) and instantly inspect the results.


***Rereference Diagrams***

References in the ontology (and their internal references) may also be shown
on the graph now. This functionality is very helpful to inspect ontology
dependences for complex scenarios. User may trace references even directly
from the Internet.


***Reference Explorer***

Another helpful new functionality is Reference Explorer window. When user
add some reference to the ontology he's unfamiliar with, the common problem
is to understand what the referenced ontology really 'offers'. Currently
Fluent Editor hints entities declared in referenced ontologies. Reference
Explorer allows more explicitly browse currently used references and see
what their content is.


***SWRL Debugger***

SWRL is a powerful mechanism to build actual ontologies and express complex
conditional relations for instances. Yet it is quite intractable to trace,
especially for larger ontologies. To support users while modeling with SWRL
we've delivered first version of embedded SWRL debugger. In a brief it
allows to inspect which rules were executed during materialization and what
entities was substituted for their head clauses (and used in the body).


***Active Rules emulator***

Ontorion server is equipped with a powerful feature called 'Active Rules'.
In a brief it allows to deploy within the knowledge-base (on the server
side) imperative code that will be executed when a certain conditions are
met, expressed with the SWRL. Ontorion will secure that even in the
clustered deployment each Active Rule is executed at most once and at least
once. The body of the Active Rule may perform any arbitrary action or update
the knowledge base! You may treat it as a way to 'break the monotonicity' of
the Semantic Database.

Fluent Editor 2014 R3 allows to emulate the whole mechanism in place, right
in the editor, along with knowledge modifications and external executables.
Those rules then can be directly deployed with the Ontorion server.


***Proxy Configuration***

Last but not least new functionality is a Network Proxy configuration. Many
enterprise environments requires configuring properly the available Proxy
server to access Internet. Now User can do this configuration also in Fluent
Editor. The Proxy will be used to access Internet for processing references,
connecting to SPARQL, Ontorion deployments and checking for updates.


***Performance improvements***

Several performance improvements has been introduced in this release to make
it even more convenient working with large ontologies.
