There's so much to do right now here, and even much, much more I'd like to do - and thus I'm getting a bit late on my announcements. Finally, here we go: dlpconvert is released in a 0.5 version.

You probably think: what is dlpconvert? dlpconvert is able to convert ontologies, that are within the dlp-fragment, from one syntax - namely the OWL XML Presentation Syntax- into another, here Datalog. Thus you can just take your ontology, convert it and then use the result as your program in your Prolog-engine. Isn't that cool?

Well, it would be much cooler if it were stronger tested, and if it could read some more common syntaxes like RDF/XML-Serialisation of OWL ontologies, but both is on the way. As for testing I would hope that you may test a bit - as for the serialisation, it should be available pretty soon.

dlpconvert is based totally on KAON2 for the reduction of the ontology.

I will write more as soon as I have more time.
