Hash: SHA1

                   Raptor RDF Parser Library 1.4.19

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.

          *** WARNING: FUTURE ABI and API CHANGES ***
  The next release of raptor 1.4.x will include bug fixes only and no
  new features. New development will move to raptor 2 where a planned
  ABI and API break will happen. There may be preview releases of
  raptor 2 with 1.9.x numbering.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2008-06-25 are:
  * Many improvements to RSS tag soup (RSSes and Atom) parser and the
    RSS 1.0 and Atom serializers.
  * Several fixes and improvements to the N-Triples, RDFa and RDF/XML
    parsers and Turtle serializer.
  * Improved the use and configuration of static libxml functions for
    better compatibility.
  * Several Win32 portability fixes - Lou Sakey.
  * Many internal changes for upcoming Raptor V2 - primarily by Lauri Aalto.
