                   Raptor RDF Parser Library 1.4.16

Raptor is a free software / Open Source C library that provides a set
of Resource Description Framework (RDF) parsers and serializers that
both generate RDF triples by parsing syntaxes and serialize RDF
triples into a syntax.  It is a mature, portable and high performance
library that works across many systems and architectures.

It parses the following syntax into RDF triples:
  RDF/XML, N-Triples, TRiG, Turtle, GRDDL (including microformats
  hCard and hCal) and RSS tag soup for 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, RSS 1.0, Graphviz DOT and Turtle.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2007-03-26 are:
 * 100% support for the GRDDL W3C Recommendation of 2007-09-11
 * Turtle parser and serializer updated to support @base from Turtle 2007-09-11.
 * Turtle and RDF/XML serializers had performance improvements for large graphs.
 * Added a TRiG Parser based on Turtle with named graph support.
 * Several other API changes, fixed and improvements were made.
 * Fixed reported issues: 0000188, 0000192, 0000194, 0000195, 0000207,
   0000210, 0000214, 0000216, 0000217, 0000232, 0000237, 0000238 and
... many of which are demonstrated in Triplr http://triplr.org/

packages for Debian unstable will be made available shortly via the
standard debian archive and download.librdf.org.
