[Please forward to all people who have been waiting for new DBpedia 
releases.]

Dear all,

we built a complex, automated, test-driven system around the DBpedia 
releases to allow the community to debug and extend the data and tools 
better. The system is partially implemented and documented, meaning:

* from now on there will be monthly DBpedia releases

* they are *neither as complete* as the last big release *nor perfect*, 
but decent and they will improve each month with your contribution

* the system feels more effective as in: we found it much easier to 
locate and fix issues due to automatic testing URI patterns, N-Triples 
syntax and soon SHACL on Minidumps (triggered on software git commit) 
and on the final large dumps.

* two former community extensions were submitted already: DBkWik 
<https://databus.dbpedia.org/sven-h/dbkwik/dbkwik/2019.09.02> and 
LinkedHypernyms 
<https://databus.dbpedia.org/propan/lhd/linked-hypernyms/2016.04.01>


Only technical documentation is available at the moment. No summary 
statistics yet, i.e. we don't know yet how well we are doing overall.

* How to download: http://dev.dbpedia.org/Download_DBpedia

* How to improve: http://dev.dbpedia.org/Improve_DBpedia

* They can be browsed via http://databus.dbpedia.org/dbpedia but thereĀ  
docu is incomplete and the query and collection builder is untested

Also next week, 12th of September, DBpedia will meet at SEMANTiCS 2019
