	    Redland RDF Libraries 1.0.8 and Rasqal 0.9.16

Redland is a set of Free Software / Open Source C libraries that
provide high-level APIs 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.

Today I am announcing releases of updates to three of the Redland packages:
~  Rasqal RDF Query Library (rasqal) 0.9.16
~  Redland RDF API Library (redland) 1.0.8
~  Redland RDF Language bindings (redland-bindings)

These are due to an ABI/API change in Rasqal that is needed for the
future.  It only makes sense to upgrade all of these at the same time
since they form a dependency change.

The release consists of the full sources, source and binary RPM
packages for x86 Fedora Core 7 (My FC9 virtual machine is broken).
Binary deb packages for Debian unstable (deb) will be available
shortly via the standard debian archive and are available at
http://download.librdf.org/binaries/debian/unstable/ now.

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

For more information on Redland, Raptor or Rasqal please join
the redland-dev list by visiting http://librdf.org/lists/

Issues should be reported to http://bugs.librdf.org/
