ANNOUNCEMENT: rdf2owlxml 0.2 publicly released

rdf2owlxml [1] converts OWL ontologies from RDF/XML-serialisation [2] 
into the OWL/XML Presentation Syntax [3]. It is actually not much more 
but a light-weight wrapper around KAON2 [4].

The OWL/XML Presentation Syntax [3] has some advantages compared to the 
standard RDF/XML-serialisation, like an easier further processing with 
standard XML techniques like the XSL-family of standards, XQuery and 
many more. Hopefully, by providing this converter, it will foster some 
new developments like an XSL-Transformer of OWL Ontologies into SVG or 
XHTML or such pretty cool stuff, that has not been achievable easy with 
the usual RDF/XML-serialised ontologies.

This is the first public release, so don't you may still stumble over 
some technical details. Feedback is highly welcomed to 

rdf2owlxml is totally based on the implementation of the ontolgy im- and 
exporter implented in KAON2 [4] by Boris Motik of the FZI [5]. 
rdf2owlxml is developed by Denny Vrandecic of the AIFB [6] of the 
University of Karlsruhe.
