Yes, however since I am out of the office and it would be best to have others on the support list help out.

Is BioPortal still available for local deployments? I can’t find any download/installation info. 

We have been running a local copy of BioPortal 2.0. However, with our upgrade to LexEVS 5.x, BioPortal no longer works. I guess they made changes in the lexbig API now part of LexEVS.

New Features 

    • Get all terms service 

The 'Get all terms' service will be changing to support speedier and more complete term retrieval. To support this, several changes to the response XML and service signature are being made. Please see the following notes to update your existing applications to support these changes.         • Documentation: 

Instance service 

A new service has been added to retrieve information about an instance and its property/value pairs.         • Documentation:

The View Extraction service allows users to create branches of an ontology starting at a given concept. The service returns an OWL file that contains the branch.         • Documentation: 

Logging Service 

Calls can now be made to the logging service remotely to track how users are interacting with various BioPortal interfaces (including the BioPortal UI, Search, Annotator, and Resource Index). Logging will be enabled on the BioPortal UI in the next few days.
