As there were several requests: We recompiled the VOWL plugin for 
Protégé so that it also works with the older Java version 1.6 now (which 
is the Java version that comes with the bundle installation of Protégé 
4.3). The new JAR file (for those who got errors with the old one) is 
available at: http://vowl.visualdataweb.org/protegevowl.html
