We have released D2R Server 0.3 today. D2R Server is a tool for publishing
relational databases on the Web.

In addition to the SPARQL interface of previous versions, this release adds
a "dereferencing interface" that allows HTML browsers and RDF browsers like
Tabulator to navigate the content of existing non-RDF databases.

The dereferencing interface provides HTTP GET access to XHTML and RDF
representations of objects in the database. The generated representations
are richly interlinked to enable browsers and crawlers to navigate database

More information about D2R Server and its dereferencing interface is found
on the project website:

D2R server tries to closely follow existing Web standards and
best-practices, such as Architecture of the WWW [1], Best Practice Recipes
for Publishing RDF Vocabularies [2] and TAG's httpRange14 finding [3]. So if
you have any suggestions how we can improve the standards conformance and
usability of the server, please let us know.
