 Dear all,

We are happy to announce the first release of  OOPS! (OntOlogy Pitfall
Scanner!) [1].

OOPS! aims to help developers with ontology validation by scanning for
*potential*** pitfalls that could lead to modelling errors. OOPS! output
points to *suspicious* elements, enabling developers to improve their
ontologies. Please note that manual investigation of *suspicious* elements
may be necessary in order to avoid false alarms. We hope to minimize these
cases soon :-)

Current research supporting OOPS! is partly described in the OntoQual2010
[2] and CAEPIA 2009 [3]  papers.

Although OOPS! is still in alpha version, it has proven to be useful within
several ontology development projects carried out within the Ontology
Engineering Group [4] and by other organizations.

We  believe it is worthwhile to experience OOPS! as a user and would
encourage you to use it as part of your ontology validation activity or
just to play.

Please help us to improve OOPS!. Feedback is more than welcome [5].

Marķa and Mari Carmen
