We have this week released RDF.rb 0.3.0, as detailed in the blog post today at:

  <http://blog.datagraph.org/2010/12/rdf-for-ruby>

The major new features include transactions and basic graph pattern
(BGP) queries, as well as the availability of robust and fast
parser/serializer plugins for the RDFa, Notation3, Turtle, and RDF/XML
serialization formats. In addition, many bugs have been fixed and
general improvements, including significant performance improvements,
implemented.

RDF.rb 0.3.0 is largely backwards-compatible to 0.2.x in API terms,
and should not cause much if any upgrade trouble for RDF.rb users: a
handful of deprecated methods have been removed, but it's doubtful
anyone was using them to begin with. RDF.rb plugin authors, however,
would do well to skim the full changelog at:

  <https://github.com/bendiken/rdf/compare/0.2.3...0.3.0>

We are also pleased to announce that Gregg Kellogg, the author of
RdfContext, has joined the RDF.rb core development team, which now
consists of him, Ben Lavender, and myself. This merger between the
RDF.rb and RdfContext efforts is a perfect match, given that Ben and I
had in any case been focused more on storing and querying RDF data
while Gregg had been doing a great job of single-handedly solving RDF
serialization in Ruby.

For more information on what's new in RDF.rb 0.3.0, please refer to
the aforementioned release announcement blog post, and be sure to
follow @datagraph, @bendiken, @bhuga, and @gkellogg on Twitter for the
very latest updates on RDF.rb as they happen.
