See the Release Notes for the full details of the changes.


Redland librdf is a library that provides a high-level interface for the Resource Description Framework (RDF) allowing the RDF graph to be parsed from XML, stored, queried and manipulated. Redland implements each of the RDF concepts in its own class via an object based API, reflected into the language APIs, currently Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby. Several classes providing functionality such as for parsers, storage are built as modules that can be loaded at compile or run-time as required.

The Redland librdf language bindings provides the higher level language APIs to Redland in the following languages.
