              Raptor RDF Syntax Library 1.9.1 (V2 beta 2)
                      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
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
  http://librdf.org/raptor/RELEASE.html#rel1.9.1

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/
