1. Franz to distribute RacerPro in North America and Asia

Franz Inc. and Racer Systems GmbH & Co. KG signed a mutual, long-term
distribution agreement that enables each party to deliver complete
knowledge-base and application development systems to customers. While
Franz Inc. will be an exclusive distributor of the RacerPro system in
the US and Canada as well as Australia, Japan, India, China, and other
Asian countries.

Quoting from an unsolicited Master's Thesis that was published on the
web this month:

"Overall, RACER is the fastest system for OWL. It is also relatively
scalable. It is efficient for reasoning on complex ontology with
relatively large scale. This makes RACER a better choice for the users
dealing with complex semantic data and expecting more information from
the ontology."

Zhijun Zhang, Masters Thesis (M.S. in CS Degree) June 2005
"Ontology Query Languages for the Semantic Web:
A Performance Evaluation"
