		   Raptor RDF Parser Toolkit 0.9.9

               Supported by EU IST project SWAD-Europe

Raptor is a C library that provides parsers for the RDF/XML and
N-Triples syntaxes returning triples.  It was designed to work
closely with the Redland RDF library (RDF Parser Toolkit for Redland
- Raptor) but is fully separate.  It is free software / Open Source,
has no memory leaks so far and is pretty fast.

This is release adds some new features, a few bug fixes and
performance improvements - upgrading is recommended.  There are still
some known conformance issues.

Summary of changes:

  * Performance improvements
     Uses less memory, less repeated small malloc/free sequences,
     faster for larger files.
  * Added WWW retrieval
     Can parse from an URI as well as files, given either libcurl or
     libxml2 is available.
   * Minor bug fixes.
   * Various Win32 configure, building patches
   * Sources updated to use autoconf 1.6+, automake 2.52+
   * More debian packaging updates.

The release consists of the full sources, RPM binaries and source RPM
packages for RedHat Linux 7.3.  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
