Reddy 0.1.0 released

Just a quick announcement: Reddy 0.1.0 has been released. It’s a
libxml-ruby-based RDF library for Ruby (currently just C-based Ruby,
although we hope to have it running on top of other Ruby platforms
soon). There has been a need for a native Ruby RDF library for some
time, and in February I started work on one.

Reddy 0.1.0 has the following features:

  • comprehensive and well-tested implementations of the basic classes
    used in RDF, developed to pass the W3C test suite.
  • a fast parser for RDF/XML documents

Planned for future versions:

  • Turtle/Notation3, TriX and RDF/JSON support
  • possibly a multiple-approach navigation model similar to RAP’s (the
    RDF API for PHP) onto-centric approach
  • SPARQL support
  • RDFa parsing
  • and much more
