For those of you who are looking to enhance your search (and other applications) capabilities with Natural Language Processing capabilities like named entity extraction, parsing, sentence detection and others techniques, do take note that the long standing Sourceforge project, OpenNLP, has entered incubation at the Apache Software Foundation.  I think this is a great move for the project as it will no doubt bring greater contributions and attention from a wider audience leading to many new enhancements and bug fixes.

We are still in the very early stages of moving things over from Sourceforge, but do keep your eyes on the Apache Incubator site and the OpenNLP site for news of when the new site is live and when the code has officially moved.
