The SIMILE project, a joint project conducted by the W3C, HP, MIT
Libraries, and MIT CSAIL to promote semantic inteoperability of metadata
between digital libraries, is happy to announce the release of their
web-based general RDF browser.

Longwell is a Java web application written on top of Jena, Apache
Velocity and Apache Lucene, providing the ability to browse and search
any kind of RDF dataset, both thru facetted browsing and thru free-text
search and thru the combination of the two.

Longwell can be tuned to different RDF ontologies with no need to write
additional code.

Longwell is open source and it's released under a BSD-style license.

Development is done in an purely collaborative way and the SIMILE team
welcomes contributions, suggestions, bug reports and feature requests.
