We present a new release of the expert systems prototyping software Personal Knowledge Base Designer. The software provides the use of a special notation for rule modeling, namely, Rule Visual Modeling Language (RVML); wizards for creating and editing knowledge base elements; conceptual models, and canonical spreadsheet tables as main sources of domain knowledge. The new version presents enhancements of existing tools and introduces new abilities: using decision tables as a new source of domain knowledge; implementation of an RVML extension for modeling incompleteness and inaccuracy in logical rules, namely, FuzzyRVML; generation source codes for PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) and FuzzyCLIPS.
