ANN: NG4J 0.3 released including TriG parser and serializer

Hi all,

we have released 'NG4J - Named Graph API for Jena' version 0.3 today.

Compared with version 0.2 we have added a:
- TriG parser
- TriG serializer
- TriX parser supporting XSLT syntactic extensions
- several major bugfixes.

The Named Graphs API for Jena (NG4J) is an extension to the Jena Semantic
Web framework for parsing, manipulating and serializing sets of Named

TriG is a plain text format for serializing Named Graphs. The TriG syntax
offers a compact and readable alternative to the XML-based TriX syntax. 

TriG is roughly Turtle, extended with
- ‘{' and ‘}' to group triples into multiple graphs and to precede each
graph by its name 
- optional :- graph naming operator

NG4J can be downloaded under BSD license from Sourceforge: 

NG4J 0.3 requires a recent Jena build. It works with Jena 2.2 Beta 1 which
was released yesterday.
