New DBpedia Monthly Releases

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

[Responses and questions can also go into]

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 and LinkedHypernyms

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.

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

Hi all,
andy seaborne switched some warnings off (Code: 47/NOT_NFKC and Code: 56/COMPATIBILITY_CHARACTER ) in Jena for us:<>
effective for Jena 3.13.0
At the moment we remove all triples with WARNING, but it is too much fallout.
We also got the tests running for the minidump:

This means abstract extraction can run now.
SHACL tests on the minidumps will follow.
