		   Raptor RDF Parser Toolkit 0.9.12

               Supported by EU IST project SWAD-Europe

Raptor is a free software/Open Source C library that parses RDF
syntaxes such as RDF/XML and N-Triples into RDF triples.  It handles
all RDF vocabularies such as FOAF, RSS 1.0, Dublin Core and OWL.

Raptor was designed to work closely with the Redland RDF library but
is fully separate.  It is a portable library that works across many
POSIX systems (Unix, GNU/Linux, BSDs, OSX, cygwin) and others. It has
been tested on multiple architectures (x86, IA64, powerpc, alpha,
sparc).  Raptor has no known memory leaks and is fast.

This is a minor update of Raptor and the second 1.0 release candidate
since some bugs that caused crashes were fixed.  1.0 will be the next
version if no such serious bugs are found.  At version 1.0 several
deprecated functions will be removed - listed in the documentation.

Summary of changes:

 * Fix some XML memory leaks in Exclusive XML Canonicalization.
 * Stop parsing RSS Tag Soup after a user abort.
 * Improved N-Triples syntax checking.
 * Crash fixes for 64 bit Alpha/Sparc Linux/Solaris (varargs, size_t).
 * Fixed some other minor memory leaks with rdf:datatype and rdf:ID attributes.
 * Other minor bug fixes.

The release consists of the full sources, RPM binaries and source RPM
packages for RedHat Linux 9.  These are also available from the
Redland SourceForge mirror site at

The main web site lets you browse and check out the latest version of
the sources in CVS and use Raptor in various demos (as part of Redland).

I post updates about Redland and Raptor to the redland-dev list
which is one of the lists you can join from the list page at
