	   Redland RDF Application Framework Library 1.0.5

Redland is a Free Software / Open Source C library that provides a
high-level API 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 on
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 main changes in this version since the last release 2006-05-05 are:
 * Updated to use [2]Rasqal 0.9.13 (from 0.9.12)
 * Updated to use [3]Raptor 1.4.13 (from 1.4.9)
 * Several API additions
 * Parsing methods can take a NULL base URI when it is not needed
 * Added serializer methods to serialize from a stream
 * Many fixes and improvements to the SQLite storage
 * Export some more functions to the SWIG binding
 * Many minor improvements
 * Many other bug fixes addressing Issues #0000092, #0000103,
   #0000105, #0000107, #0000114, #0000116, #0000125, #0000130,
   #0000132, #0000136 and #0000139.
