The work that is being done as part of the EarthCollab project for enabling different VIVO instances to pull JSON or RDF from each other should be compatible with the latest develop branch (it is currently compatible with 1.8.1). We also need to review this functionality to see whether/how it can be integrated with the core VIVO codebase. These features enable the display of the profile page as JSON (i.e. the properties/property groups etc. and the actual values displayed and not the RDF) as well as RDF (which goes beyond the linked data output by exporting all of the RDF used to generate the whole profile).
