Protege 3.2 Beta update (build 331)

 There is a new beta build available on our Web site:
http://protege.stanford.edu/download/prerelease/full/[1]
http://protege.stanford.edu/download/prerelease/basic/[2] Changes in Core
Protege ----------------------- 1. Bundled a new version of the Prompt
plug-in. Changes &Bug Fixes in Prompt (new 3.0 release of Prompt)
--------------------------------------------------------- 1. Added an
explicit mapping mode to Prompt. Previously, mapping was performed during
merge. Note that you open your source ontology in Protege and specify the
target in the Prompt tab when using the mapping mode (this is different from
merging mode). More details are available on the Wiki [1]. 2. Integrated a
mapping interpreter, developed by John Park, John Gennari, and Monica
Crubezyin previous years at SMI. After you use Prompt to save the mappings
inthe mapping ontology, you can invoke the mapping interpreter from the
Prompt menu to transform instances from your source to your target, based on
the mapping. See the Wiki page [2] for more details on specifying the
mappings. Thanks go to David Buttler for contributing this documentation. 3.
Developed a plug-in architecture for Prompt. Developers can now add plug-ins
to Prompt to integrate new mapping algorithms for initial comparison of
ontologies and new user-interface components. Thanks go to Sean Falconer for
implementing this architecture. Please see the Wiki page [3] if you would
like to develop Prompt plug-ins. 4. Added two algorithm plug-ins to Prompt:
(1) a plug-in that uses the FOAM algorithm [4] for initial matching (thanks
go to Sean Falconer for this contribution) and (2) an algorithm that allows
users to specify a slot where synonyms to class names are stored and uses
thesynonyms as well as preferred names for matching. The distribution also
includes a visualization plug-in JambaPrompt developed by Sean Falconer that
uses Jambalaya-style visualizations for mappings and a number of other
user-interface enhancements. 5. Fixed a bug in the AnchorPrompt algorithm
that prevented it from being invoked. 6. Improved support for OWL
ontologies:you can now have multiple namespaces in your source ontologies.
7.Moved the Prompt Web page to the Wiki and added more documentation [5].
Important notice: the version of Prompt that is bundled with this build of
Protege has a bug in the FOAM plug-in for Prompt. Unfortunately, due to some
recent hardware difficulties, we are unable to run a new Protege build at
this time. Thus, if you would like to try out the FOAM plug-in for Prompt,
follow the instructions on the Wiki for a separate download of the plug-in
