                    Raptor RDF Parser Library 1.4.18

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, Turtle and JSON.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2008-03-30 are:
   * Added an RDFa parser using an embedded version of librdfa by Manu
     Sporny of Digital Bazaar.
   * Added an Atom 1.0 (RFC 4287) serializer with several output
   * Improved RSS 1.0 serializer functionality and resilience.
   * Added new API methods for qname, serializer, sequence and XML
     writer classes.
   * Many other fixes and resilience improvements.
   * Fixed reported issues: 0000186 and 0000255.
