In the November meeting, the ASF Board as decided to establish Apache Marmotta as a new Top-Level Project.
Stay tuned for further updates or join the mailing-lists for live updates!
Apache Marmotta is an Open Platform for Linked Data.
The goal of Apache Marmotta is to provide an open implementation of a Linked Data Platform that can be used, extended and deployed easily by organizations who want to publish Linked Data or build custom applications on Linked Data.
Right now the project is graduating from the incubator as a new Top Level Project in the Apache Software Foundation. Since entering the incubator in December 2012, the team has worked really hard to move the codebase to the Apache infrastructure and publish releases following the ASF policies and guidelines.
Luckily we are attracting new committers joining the development team and also the user community is growing. Check the development section for further details how we work or subscribe to our mailing lists to follow the project’s day to day work.
Marmotta comes as a continuation of the work in the Linked Media Framework project. LMF is an easy-to-setup server application that bundles some technologies such as Apache Stanbol or Apache Solr to offer some advanced services. After the release 2.6, the Read-Write Linked Data server code and some related libraries have been set aside to incubate Marmotta within the The Apache Software Foundation. LMF still keeps exactly the same functionality, but now bundling Marmotta too.
Apache Marmotta joined ASF Incubator in December 2012, graduating as a Top Level Project in November 2013.
