              Raptor RDF Syntax Library 1.9.1 (V2 beta 2)

Raptor is a free software / Open Source C library that provides a set
of Resource Description Framework (RDF) parsers and serializers that
both generate RDF triples by parsing syntaxes and serialize RDF
triples into a syntax.  It is a mature, portable and high performance
library that works across many systems and architectures.

It parses the following syntax into RDF triples:
  RDF/XML, N-Triples, TRiG, Turtle, GRDDL (including microformats
  hCard and hCal), N-Quads, RDF/JSON resource-format & triples-format
  and RSS tag soup for 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-Quads, N-Triples,
  Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0, Graphviz DOT, HTML, Turtle and JSON.

The main changes in this version since the Raptor 2 beta 1 release
on 2010-08-16 are:
* Raptor 2 second beta release with some API changes. 2.0.0 final soon.
* Improved the V1 to V2 upgrading script
* raptor_new_world() checks Raptor header and library are consistent
* Constructors now validate the world pointer is from Raptor V2
* Added an N-Quads parser
* Added and removed a few API calls
* Fixed a few bugs including reported issue 0000402

The Raptor 2 API reference manual section on API changes at
http://librdf.org/raptor/api/raptor-changes.html provides
detailed function, enum, macro and type changes. The upgrading
document at http://librdf.org/UPGRADING.html explains how to upgrade
existing code to the new APIs and points to a helper perl script.

For full details of the changes see the Raptor 1.9.1 release notes at

Binary deb packages for Debian unstable will be made available
later via the standard Debian archive.  These will have new names
separate from the V1 packages.

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 Triplr http://triplr.org/
