Dear all,

  there is a new version of the XML->RDF extraction framework Krextor (0.3) at
http://kwarc.info/projects/krextor/.  Now, some more frequently used input and
output formats are supported, most notably RDFa as input, and Turtle as
output.  RDFa is supported inside XHTML (+), but Krextor also makes it easy to
implement RDFa support for other host languages.  So far, RDFa is the only
supported format that is relevant for GRDDL, but Krextor has been designed to
make it easy to define extraction fules for additional input formats, e.g.
Microformats, and eventually I'm planning to implement some.

Other news:
 * shorthand syntax for defining simple XML->RDF extraction rules
 * shell script frontend
 * convenient and efficient Java integration (using XOM and Saxon)

(+) Most, but not yet all test cases of the W3C RDFa test suite work; see
https://trac.kwarc.info/krextor/wiki/RDFaTestCases for details.

If you want to give it a try for your XML language or microformat, I'd be
happy to support you in doing so.

Cheers,

Christoph
