Any updates on issue NCBO-1605 - can't search NMOSP by synonym?

Thank you

Thank you, Mike. see inline below.

2. The issue with NMOSP still stands. It is tracked internally as NCBO-1605 - can't search NMOSP by synonym. Even after having deployed the patch and re-parsing/re-indexing the ontology, I am unable to get any hits on "chimpanzee" or "common chimpanzee". This means that even after re-indexing, these values did not get picked up as "synonyms" of the concept "Pan troglodytes":

We will continue looking into the issue and update you as more details become available.

For now, I will be using only two properties for synonyms in my owl ontologies:

It is really strange that the synonym defined as these two properties were working fine with NMOSP before! I will keep my fingers crossed.

Thank you
