                   Raptor RDF Parser Toolkit 1.4.14

Raptor is a free software / Open Source C library that provides a set
of Resource Description Framework (RDF) parsers and serializers that
generate RDF triples by parsing syntaxes or serialize RDF triples
into a syntax.

It parses the following syntax into RDF triples:
  RDF/XML, N-Triples, Turtle, GRDDL and RSS tag soup for many
  RSSes, Atom 0.3 and Atom 1.0.
and serializes RDF triples into the following syntaxes:
  RDF/XML, RDF/XML abbreviated, RDF/XML XMP, N-Triples,
  Atom 1.0, RSS 1.0, Graphviz DOT and Turtle.

Raptor is designed to work closely with the Redland RDF library but
is fully separate.  It is a mature, portable and high performance
library that works across many systems and architectures.  Raptor has
no known memory leaks.

The main changes in this version since the last release 2006-10-22 are:

 * New Turtle serializer by Dave Robillard based on the existing
   RDF/XML-Abbrev serializer.
 * New GraphViz DOT format serializer by Evan Nemerson.
 * GRDDL parser now does namespace and profile URI recursion and has
   other improvements and fixes.
 * Fixed reported issues: #0000032, #0000141, #0000143, #0000148,
   #0000155 and #0000157
