Change of format in version 3.1

The version 3.1 of the Alignment API has slightly changed the RDF/XML format for alignments so that it contains more information. This should, however, be fully backward compatibe with previous implementations.

The change lies in the onto1 and onto2 attributes which now contain structured elements instead of strings. Moreover, the uri1 and uri2 element are not strictly necessary (but we still generate them in the renderer.

The old version was presented this way:

<onto1>http://example.org/the/place/where/to/find/ontology</onto1>
<uri1>http://example.org/the/ontology/identifier</uri1>

The new version is:

<onto1>
  <Ontology rdf:about="http://example.org/the/ontology/identifier">
    <location>http://example.org/the/place/where/to/find/ontology</location>
    <formalism>
      <Formalism name="myLanguage" id="http://example.org/my/Language/identifier"/>
    </formalism>
  </Ontology>
</onto1>
