Structured Dynamics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of 
the Open Semantic Framework version 3.0.

OSF is a turnkey, enterprise platform based on RDF and OWL that combines 
leading third-party open-source engines (Virtuoso, Solr, GATE, OWL API) 
with Web services and platform extensions developed by SD. It is 
designed to bring interoperability to enterprise information assets, 
achieved via a distributed and layered architecture of semantic 
technologies. OSF can integrate information from documents to Web pages 
and linked data to standard databases. Its broad functions range from 
information ingest to tagging to search and data management to publishing.

This version of OSF is the first to be released publicly in more than 
two years. OSF v 2.x was developed in the interim for non-public use, 
the advances of which were generalized for this new v 3.0 public release.

These three announcements provide more details on the release:

Additionally, the OSF Wiki has been mostly re-written and fully 
re-organized for this new release, with now nearly 500 technical documents:

As part of this release, we have consolidated terminology around the 
Open Semantic Framework branding, particularly OSF Web Services 
(formerly structWSF) [1] and OSF for Drupal (formerly conStruct) [2].

Besides an automatic installer and thousands of unit and integration 
tests, the new OSF also comes packaged with a suite of command-line 
tools [3] to aid data and ontology prep and management.

We welcome your use and comments! (and contributions ;) ).

Thanks, Mike
