As announced on this list in August, the 3.1 release removes support for Ruby versions before 2.4 and full support for Ruby 2.7.

As part of this release, there are numerous internal updates to manage changes in the way Ruby 2.7 handles hash conversion to keyword arguments. When using Ruby 2.7, this sometimes requires that calls to a method where the first argument can be a hash, and there is are keyword arguments, or a **options hash need to have the first argument enclused in curly braces ({}). This mostly affects calls to RDF::Queryable#query and RDF::Query.new, but there are some other cases. It shouldn’t affect anyone not using Ruby 2.7.

Along with this release is the json-ld gem, also at 3.1, which fully supports the JSON-LD 1.1 Candidate Recommendation [1][2][3]. People depending on the output of framing may notice that the top-level object no longer uses @graph; this can be changed using an option, or by explicitly setting processingMode to “json-ld-1.0”.

The Distiller [4] has been updated with the latest releases, and consolidated documentation for all gems can be found there.
