                   Raptor RDF Parser Library 1.4.15
                      http://librdf.org/raptor/

Raptor is a free software / Open Source C library that provides a set
of Resource Description Framework (RDF) parsers and serializers that
generate RDF triples by parsing syntaxes or serialize RDF triples
into a syntax.  It is a mature, portable and high performance library
that works across many systems and architectures.  Raptor has no
known memory leaks.

It parses the following syntax into RDF triples:
  RDF/XML, N-Triples, Turtle, GRDDL and RSS tag soup for many
  RSSes, Atom 0.3 and Atom 1.0.
and serializes RDF triples into the following syntaxes:
  RDF/XML, RDF/XML abbreviated, RDF/XML XMP, N-Triples,
  Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0, Graphviz DOT and Turtle.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2007-01-31 are:

* GRDDL parser substantially updated to support the
  GRDDL W3C Working Draft 2 March 2007
* Errors for XML parsing and URI 404s are reported much better
* Fixed reported issues: #0000174, #0000177, #0000178, #0000180
* Many other minor fixes and improvements.
... many of which are demonstrated in Triplr http://triplr.org/

For full details of the changes see the Raptor 1.4.15 release notes at
  http://librdf.org/raptor/RELEASE.html#rel1_4_15

Raptor 1.4.15 and future versions have no testing on anything but
Linux and OSX since SourceForge.net abandoned providing a compile farm.

Binary RPM packages for Fedora Core 6 are also available however,
since Raptor 1.4.14 is in Fedora Extras, this may be the last time
these are made.  Binary deb packages for Debian unstable will be made
available shortly via the standard debian archive and download.librdf.org.

Sources and binaries are also available from the Redland
SourceForge mirror site at http://sourceforge.net/projects/librdf/

The http://librdf.org/ site lets you browse and check out the latest
version of the sources in Subversion and use Raptor in various demos
as part of Redland such as ~Triple http://triplr.org/
