We are happy to announce the availability of

               -ontop- v.1.16 (Now available for Protégé 5)

a Java framework to query ontologies with mappings to databases.

If you are interested in virtual RDF graphs, R2RML mappings and/or
RDFS/OWL2QL reasoning, then -ontop- is for you. The system implements
the cutting edge SPARQL-to-SQL and query optimisation techniques that
allow it to answer SPARQL queries using SQL databases while obtaining
great  performance.

With -ontop-, you don't need to move your data from your already
efficient database in order to enjoy the benefits of the RDF data
model, the SPARQL query language or RDF/OWL2QL inference.
And there is no need for expensive ETL or forward/backward chaining either.

You can use -ontop- as an API, a SPARQL end-point, or as a Protege plugin.

The highlights of this new release include:

*Support for most SPARQL functions.
*Support for column oriented RDBMS: MonetDB.
*Support for cloud RDBMS: SAP HANA.
*New optimization technique: Implicit-database-constraints
*New optimization technique: Exact-Mappings
*Bug Fixes
--regarding quotes in the WHERE clause of SQL query in mappings.
--regarding multiple subjects in the target of mapping of Ontop native syntax.
--regarding datetime columns using jtds driver
--regarding LIMIT with ORDER BY in oracle database
--regarding the MetaMappingExpander
