Subject GATE version 4 released
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2007 14:35:03 GMT
GATE version 4 is now available for download from Sourceforge (follow
the download link from http://gate.ac.uk/).

Version 4 includes major new facilities for annotation indexing and
search, machine learning, scaleable ontology support from OWLIM
(http://www.ontotext.com/owlim/), ontology-based document annotation,
and parallel corpus alignment. There is a raft of efficiency and
infrastructure improvements including revamped HTML handling, Java 5
support and numerous optimisations and bug fixes. The set of plugins
available has expanded to include around 150 components, which integrate
with many high-quality language processing tools from the wider research
community (http://gate.ac.uk/gate/doc/plugins.html).

GATE is free and open (under the LGPL licence) and you are very welcome
to use it for both commercial and research purposes. A number of
businesses now use GATE in production applications, from large
corporates like Thompson or AT&T to startups like Garlik or Innovantage.
Research, teaching and student users represent a high proportion of
labs working on language and knowledge worldwide.

Plans for the future include:

- a new version of the JAPE finite state annotation processing language
- more and better integration with related systems and tools
- SAFE, the Semantic Annotation Factory Environment:

GATE is developed on Ubuntu (and other less advanced operating systems).
Attached the changelog for version 4.

Best regards,

Hamish Cunningham & the GATE team
