OpenSKOS software implements a web-service-based approach to management and use of vocabularies based on SKOS design principles. This paper motivates and describes the most recent developments in the software. These developments include migrating from a relational MySQL database to a triplestore and corresponding changes in the software. Also, relation management has been extended so that user-defined relations can be added and used along with SKOS-specified relations. This transfer ensures smooth upgrade of the OpenSKOS-based projects and reusing those parts of the software that have preserved their relevance.
