Heya folks :)
We just enabled the time datatype \o/ This means it is now possible to
create properties that can be used to indicate when something
happened. A lot of time-related properties are already proposed
) and should
be created soon. It'll then for example be possible to indicate that
) was sent on its way to
Mars on November 26, 2011. It'll of course also be possible to use
this as a qualifier to indicate when a certain statement was valid for
example. As usual please let me know about any issues you're seeing
after this update.
As many of you have asked me what comes next here's a quick overview:
We'll be working on more datatypes. Geocoordinate, number, url,
monolingual text, multilingual text and numbers with units are left.
Geocoordinate is being worked on right now. Then ordering of
statements is planned and then ranks (to indicate that a statement is
deprecated or preferred). In parallel to all this queries (phase 3
basically) are being worked on.
