What's New or Changed Since 0.6

Version 0.7 introduces the Grounding ontology, and includes some refinements to the Profile and Process Model ontologies. In addition, a new example of a Profile-based (yellow-pages style) service taxonomy is presented, and the existing service examples have been made more complete. The new Grounding ontology ties DAML-S in with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), an emerging, collaborative industry effort that is currently the focus of a W3C working group.
