I just released the dm4-wikidata-toolkit module as the first truely 4.5
compatible plugin into the free:

This plugin realizes (at least) Goal 3 of the DeepaMehta 4 - Wikidata
Connection [1]
- Enabling users of DM to re-use global entities, e.g. the city of
"Berlin" (or other obvious global entities alike) and sparing them of
creating those manually in every deepamehta4 installation over and over

The out-of-the box feature set includes:
1 Analysis & selection of wikidata entities (based on their claims)
2 Configurable importer settings (esp. which language to take the entities
label and descriptions from)
3 Transformation of wikidata entities to dm4 standard topic types 
(Cities, Countries, Persons and Institutions)
4 Transformation of claims relating two wikidata items (custom
employee_of, citizen_of, student_of, affiliated_with and mentor_of assoc
5 Setting up a custom query endpoint with dm4 based on wikidata


Note: The WikidataToolkit (and thus this plugin) depends on the usage of
**Java 7**.

How and what the plugin does this in detail, is described here:

Just the importing of "Geo Coordinates" is not yet implemented but planned
to come up with the very next release.
