I am happy to announce the third release candidate for Semantic MediaWiki 2.0 is now available.
Semantic MediaWiki 2.0 is the next big release, which brings new features and many enhancements. Most notably vastly improved SPARQL store support, including a brand new connector for Jena Fuseki.
The target for the actual 2.0 release is August 3rd. This release candidate is meant to gather feedback and to provide you with a peak at 2.0 already. If you find any issues, please report them on our issue tracker.
If you are using SMW via Composer, update the version in your composer.json to “~2.0@rc” and run “composer update”. If you where running dev versions of the 1.9 series using “~1.9@dev” or similar, switch to “~2.0@dev”. Note that several extensions to SMW, such as Semantic Maps and Semantic Result Formats, do not yet have any stable release which is installable together with SMW 2.x. If you are also running those, you will likely have to switch them to use a development version.
You can also download the SMW 2.0 RC3 tarball.
More detailed upgrading instructions will be made available for the 2.0 release.
