[ANN] any23 v0.2 released

Hi All,

    We are proud to announce a new release of any23 -- Anything to Triples.


Any23 is a Java library that parses RDF from a variety of Web document
formats. The currently supported input formats are RDFa, RDF/XML,
Turtle, N3, N-Triples, and a number of Microformats.
Any23 is an Open Source project originated from the code created
within the Sindice project and now used both inside sindice and in
related projects e.g. Sig.Ma

Any23 comes with a handy command-line tool for parsing RDF and
converting between formats.

We have also set up a demo service where you can try any23 online and
use a REST API to convert between different RDF formats, similar in
spirit to triplr.org:


The major new features in this release are:

* Redesigned Java API
 - Input from string, stream, file, or URI
 - Allow choosing which extractors to use
 - Report origin of triples (document/extractor) to client processors
 - Various processors/serializers for extracted triples
* Added flexible command-line tool for easy testing
* Vastly improved website and documentation
* Media type and encoding detection via Apache Tika
* Switched RDF library from Jena to Sesame
* Added Maven build
* Better RDF extraction from Microformats
* Extractors come with example file to document typical in- and output
* Major refactoring
* Lots and lots of bugfixes
