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.

Other news:
 * supporting OMDoc as an alternative language for OWL ontologies (see
   https://svn.omdoc.org/repos/omdoc/trunk/doc/blue/foaf/note.pdf for
   background)
 * 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.

Cheers,

Christoph
