hereby we announce the availability of DL-Learner [1] Build 2008-02-18,
the second DL-Learner release. DL-Learner is a tool for learning complex
classes from examples and background knowledge. It extends Inductive
Logic Programming to Description Logics and the Semantic Web.

Downloads are available at [2]. For a list of the most important changes
since the last release (Build 2007-08-31), see the Changelog [3]. Most
notably, DL-Learner now has a flexible component based design, which
allows to extend it easily with new learning algorithms, learning
problems, reasoners, and supported background knowledge sources. A new
type of supported knowledge sources are SPARQL endpoints, where
DL-Learner can extract knowledge fragments, which enables learning
classes even on large knowledge sources like DBpedia. Furthermore,
DL-Learner now supports learning from only positive examples
(preliminary), inclusion axiom learning, the usage of N-Triple files as
background knowledge, the OWL API reasoner interface, and has a more
powerful web service interface.

DL-Learner is developed at the AKSW [4] research group. I'd like to
thank Sebastian Hellmann, Sebastian Knappe, and Tilo Hielscher for their

Best regards,

Jens Lehmann
