		     Rapier RDF/XML Parser 0.9.1
	     http://www.redland.opensource.ac.uk/rapier/

Rapier is an RDF/XML parser that I wrote for my Redland RDF
application framework (RDF Parser for Redland - RaPieR) and although
designed to integrate with it closely, works fine separate from
Redland.  It is free software / open source, has no memory leaks so
far and is pretty fast.

This is the second release of Rapier (since January) and has lots of
improvements but it is still alpha quality; i.e. has known failures.

Summary of changes:

   * Many bug fixes
   * Updates for Redland API changes
   * Fixed rdf:parsetype="literal" buffer overrun
   * Added better XML parser auto-detection for various expats and libxml
   
The release consists of the full sources, RPM binary and source RPM
packages for RedHat GNU/Linux 6.2.  These are also available from the
Redland SourceForge mirror site at
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/librdf/
The main web site also lets you browse the source in CVS and use
Rapier in various demos (as part of Redland).

WARNING: This is work in progress - the APIs will change, it is not
feature complete and it needs lots of testing and conformance
checking.  There are known bugs - see the web site for details.

I post updates about Redland and Rapier to the Yahoo! Groups list at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/redland/ and invite you to join if you
are interested.
