Re: [heads up] Major fix in Semantic Bank 2.1.1 restores Piggy Bank 2.1 uploading abilities

I am using the repository version of Semantic Bank along with the release of Piggy Bank that is available from the site, and uploading does not work. Not sure why, and there is no error message, and I do get the message "All is published" and so on. But no data is actually uploaded it seems.

Any ideas where to start looking? Anyone else having problem with this?

Subject: [heads up] Major fix in Semantic Bank 2.1.1 restores Piggy Bank 2.1 uploading abilities

It turns out that a few months ago, while I was playing with Semantic
Bank to enable automated RDF/XML upload, I introduced a change that
looked harmless but ended up breaking the ability for piggybank to
upload data on it (and it took me a day to figure it out!)

I have now restored it, and a new 2.1.1 version with this fix is now
available for download. I have also updated the "SIMILE Semantic Bank"
to this latest version.

We are experiencing some weird behavior (like ontology labels missing,
tags that come and go, information that takes a while to migrate from
your own account to the global data pool when you publish, encoding
issues) so we might do a series of fast releases to fix those issues,
but we didn't want to hold off this since it's a pretty important fix.

Anyway, the most important thing is that now uploading to a Semantic
Bank to Piggy Bank is now functional again.
