Ontopia 5 2 1 Released
August 15, 2012
Ontopia’s Blog has posted an extremely brief notice: “Ontopia 5.2.1 Released.” The post states that “This is a minor release which fixes the vizigator and vizlet in the distribution.” (Vizigator is a nifty graphical visualization too.) It then refers us to the release notes, which state:
“This release is a minor bug fix release, which includes the fixed vizigator and omnigator vizlet.”
The following bugs have been fixed:
- Issue 438: Vizigator is not starting on Mac!
- Issue 439: TopicNameComparator might throw NullPointerException
- Issue 440: bat file pointing to noneixisting jar file in 5.2.0“
Ontopia‘s suite of open source tools help developers build applications based on Topic Maps. This important open source technology is an international industry standard for information management and interchange. A couple of developers have been working on Ontopia for over a decade, and new participants have been pulled in from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Norway.
Ontopia 1.0 was released in 2001, and the core engine is considered very stable. The software is released under the Apache License 2.0. Because the entire product is released as open source, there are no essential proprietary add-ons. Several options for commercial support are available.
