New features

1. The "Browse ontologies" page now shows the latest mappings and marginal notes that users added to BioPortal

2. The new "Projects" tab enables users to describe their projects and link to them. When describing their project, users can link the description to the BioPortal ontologies that they use in the project.

3. Search results for OWL ontologies are now correctly ordered by ranking

4. "My Projects" page enables users to edit the projects descriptions that they have submitted previously.

5. On the "All Mappings" page, only ontologies that have any mappings defined appear in the pull-down list. The list contains the number of mappings for each ontology.

New REST Service Base URL

Note that we have updated the URL to rest services to a more permanent and intuitive version: and the port has changed from 8080 to the standard, 80. The old REST service links will still work, but going forward, we should distribute the above base URL for all our RESTful services.
