I'm not sure this is as simple. When upgrading IsaViz to Jena 2.1 (from 
2.0-beta-1), I had to make minor changes to the source code to reflect 
changes in the Jena API w.r.t typed literal handling of xml:lang.

Just replacing the current Jena JARs by newer ones might work though; 
IIRC, the changes I had to make to IsaViz were just about RDF 
serialization, not parsing.
