                   Raptor RDF Parser Toolkit 1.4.10

Raptor is a free software / Open Source C library that provides a set
of Resource Description Framework (RDF) parsers and serializers that
generate RDF triples by parsing syntaxes or serialize RDF triples
into a syntax.

It parses the following syntax into RDF triples:
  RDF/XML, N-Triples, Turtle, GRDDL and RSS tag soup for many
  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-Triples,
  Atom 1.0 and RSS 1.0.

Raptor is designed to work closely with the Redland RDF library but
is fully separate.  It is a mature, portable and high performance
library that works across many systems and architectures.  Raptor has
no known memory leaks.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2006-04-22 are:

 * Fixed crash with RSS Tag Soup parser generating triples too late.
 * Fixed a crash with the RDF/XML parser and serializer if a comment was
   seen outside an element.
 * Parsers no longer generate any triple parts of type
