ANNOUNCEMENT: Redland RDF Application Framework 1.0.3

From: Dave Beckett <dave@dajobe.org>

Message-Id: <1140066828.16265.7.camel@xyzzy.dajobe.org>
	       Redland RDF Application Framework 1.0.3
			 http://librdf.org/


Redland is a C library that provides a high-level interface for the
Resource Description Framework (RDF) allowing the RDF graph to be
parsed, serialized, stored, queried and manipulated.  It is a mature,
and portable library that works across many POSIX systems (Unix,
GNU/Linux, BSDs, OSX, cygwin), win32 and others.

Redland implements each of the RDF concepts in its own class via an
object based API, reflected into the other language APIs - C#, Java,
Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and Tcl provided by the Redland Bindings[1].
Many of the classes implementations for parsers and triple stores
are built as modules that can be added or removed as required.

The changes in this version are:
 * Updated to use [1]Rasqal 0.9.11 to update to SPARQL 2005-11-23
 * Updated to use [2]Raptor 1.4.8 with many improvements
 * Added a new PostgreSQL storage contributed by Shi Wenzhong
 * Created an enhanced API reference manual with gtk-doc
 * Some other minor fixes and changes

See the detailed 1.0.3 release notes at
  http://librdf.org/RELEASE.html#rel1_0_3
for full information on all the changes.

Redland 1.0.3 was tested as working out-of-the-box (configure; make;
make check) with the following systems:

    alphaev67-unknown-linux-gnu - Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 on Alpha
    i386-pc-solaris2.9          - Sun Solaris 9 (SunOS 5.9) on x86
    i386-unknown-netbsdelf2.0.2 - NetBSD 2.0.2 on x86
    i386-unknown-openbsd3.8     - OpenBSD 3.8 on x86
    powerpc-apple-darwin8.4.0   - Apple OSX 10.4.4 on powerpc
    powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu - SuSE Linux ES 9 on powerpc64
    sparc-sun-solaris2.9        - Sun Solaris 9 (SunOS 5.9) on sparc
    x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu    - Redhat GNU/Linux Fedora Core 3 on
AMD64
    x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu    - Debian GNU/Linux unstable on AMD64

The release consists of the full sources and source RPM packages
which also available from the Redland SourceForge mirror site at
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/librdf/
(or would be if the entire site wasn't down right now)

Redhat packages for Fedora Core 5 test 2/i386 are available now.
Debian packages will be made available after release.

The main web site lets you browse and check out the latest version of
the sources in CVS and use Redland in various demos. Redland is
migrating to use Subversion after this release.  Issues should be
reported to http://bugs.librdf.org/

I post updates about Redland, Raptor and Rasqal to the redland-dev
list which is one of the lists you can join from the list page at
  http://librdf.org/lists/
