About DERI Pipes

Inspired by Yahoo's Pipes, DERI Pipes implement an Open Source generalization
which can also deal with formats such as RDF (RDFa), Microformats and
generic XML.
DERI Pipes can be extended with new add-on operators and can be used
as a Web tool, embedded as a Jar or as a command line tool.
DERI Pipes comes with a rich web GUI where pipes can be graphically
edited, debugged and run.


Changes for this release include:

-New Operators, also covering XML and more (XQuery, Scripting
javascript, python, groovy,
HTML2XML, etc. )

-Pipes can be used as a command line tool on Linux or Windows

-Pipe engine can be embedded in other applications

-Complete refactoring allows you to add your operators easily, examples given

-New installation and user documentation

-Pipes web application now runs 'out of the box' in Tomcat w. Java 1.6

-Improved logging

-Support for processing raw data types such as images or documents.

-Improved performance: multi-threaded pipe processing with timeout.
