[goodrelations] GoodRelations V1 Service Update 2008-11-27 now online

Dear all:

We have just put the service update 2008-11-27 for the GoodRelations 
ontology (http://purl.org/goodrelations) online.

This will incorporate several improvements based on very valuable
feedback from many members of the GoodRelations community.

Please update all local copies and caches.

All but three changes are proper extensions of the current version. All
changes are documented at [1]. The general change log documenting all
past and future changes is at [2].

At this point, we have also switched from client-side rendering to 
content negotiation. Our server will now return HTML/XHTML when you enter


into your browser, and the OWL ontology specification if your 
application requests RDF/XML.

Should you ever need to retrieve the OWL ontology specification without 
content negotiation, you can download it from


However, that URI should be used only when 
http://purl.org/goodrelations/v1 does not work for you.

This change also removes the harmless but annoying Jena warnings that 
some of you might have experienced. Basically Jena tried to tell you 
that it found a link to the stylesheet in the RDF/XML code but did not 
process the stylesheet, which was completely correct.

Best wishes

Martin Hepp
