Last Week:

  - released solvent
  - added solvent to the graphical history page
  - fixed encoding issues with longwell2, semantic bank and piggy bank
  - allowed semantic bank to receive files uploaded in both N3 and
RDF/XML format
  - defaulted piggy bank now to RDF/XML to avoid some encoding/parsing
issues in the N3 vs. turtle differences
  - made the Piggy Bank upload system a little more solid and give
feedback to users in case the upload operation fails
  - optimized some inner workings of piggy bank that generated a lot of
memory garbage for no reason
  - updated to java 1.5 on a mac and started to use visualgc 3.0 (free
garbage collection monitoring tool from sun) to see where the problem
are [didn't find anything out of line so far]

feed validator didn't complain about it) thanks to one of our users for
  - helped a number of power users getting abusing our tools
