Dear All

I am happy to announce version 1.1.1 of the Epimorphics [1] implementation
of the Linked Data API [2]. The quickstart jar can be downloaded via

  http://code.google.com/p/elda/downloads/list

and its documentation can be perused in advance at

  http://elda.googlecode.com/hg/deliver-elda/src/main/docs/index.html

The Linked Data API provides a configurable way to access RDF data 
using simple RESTful URLs that are translated into queries to a SPARQL 
endpoint. The API developer writes an API spec (in RDF) which specifies
how to translate URLs into queries. Elda comes with some pre-built 
examples which allow you to experiment with this style of query and 
get started with building your own specs. 

Elda 1.1.1 improves over our 1.0.1 by rationalising the interpretation
of stylesheet names, making use of formatters closer to the LDA
specification, and internal improvements in the codebase.

Discussion of Elda is preferably conducted on the linked-data-api-discuss
Google group (registration required) (although I will not ignore mail
sent to chris.dollin@epimorphics.com).
