    Redland RDF Application Framework Language Bindings

Redland is a C library that provides a high-level interface for RDF
allowing the RDF graph to be parsed from XML, stored, queried and
manipulated.  Redland implements each of the RDF concepts in its own
class via an object based API, reflected into language bindings in
C#, Java, Obj-C, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and Tcl provided by this

This is the second release tracking Redland 1.0.0.  The Redland C
libraries must be installed before redland bindings can be used.  The
Redland releases can be found at http://librdf.org/

The main changes in this version are:
  * Perl bindings can return query results as RDF graphs and booleans.
  * Perl bindings can format a query result in a syntax
  * PHP binding compile fix and now registers module versions (Dave Viner)
  * Perl and Python bindings error handling was enhanced to return the
    messages fields such as line number, error type, URI or file.
  * Python error handling now defaults to throwing exceptions on
    function return

See the detailed release notes at
for full information on all the changes.

The release consists of the full sources, RPM binaries and SRPMS
packages for RedHat Fedora Core 3.  Debian debs will be available
from the main debian archive later for perl, python and ruby.  The
redland-bindings downloads are also available from the SourceForge
mirror site at http://sourceforge.net/projects/librdf/

The main web site lets you browse and check out the latest version of
the sources in CVS and use Redland in various demos.

I post updates about Redland, Raptor and Rasqal to the redland-dev list
which is one of the lists you can join from the list page at
