Hi all,


I have the pleasure to announce the release of a new version of the Linked
Open Vocabularies (LOV) application. A massive re-engineering of the
application has been made, now using the power of mongoDB/elasticsearch to
offer you a fast access to the data, and NodeJS for a clean and fast UI.

LOV will soon celebrate its 4th birthday and deserved to be refreshed! The
main improvements are:


- The use of tags for vocabularies instead of hierarchical categories (e.g.
for “Time” http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/vocabs?tag=Time).

- A fast full text search feature over 469 vocabularies as of today (
http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/vocabs), 46.000+ terms (
http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/terms), 462 agents (creators, contributors,
publishers) (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/agents).

- A wide range of APIs (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/api) to access all
LOV data. NOTE: the search v1 service API has now been shut down.

- A fast and unique SPARQL Endpoint containing LOV records and the latest
version of each vocabulary (http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov/sparql)


I would like to thank Bernard Vatant, Ghislain Atemezing and Maria Poveda
for the tremendous work they do at curating the Linked Open Vocabularies.


LOV is generously hosted by OKFN (http://okfn.org/) and has been supported
by the Datalift Association (http://datalift.org/), Fujitsu Laboratories (
http://www.fujitsu.com/ie/research/linked-data-research-team/), INSERM (
http://ics.upmc.fr/) and Mondeca (http://www.mondeca.com/).


Hope you will enjoy a new LOV experience!

Pierre-Yves Vandenbussche and the LOV curation team.
