Hi all,

I just uploaded version 3.0 of the Drive RDF Parser toolkit at 
http://www.DriveRDF.org. This release comes with lots of new stuff and 
some changes to the API. Most notable are the following.

1. Added an NTriple Parser and associated collections
2. Added overloads for the ParseRdf method to allow parsing RDF/XML from 
a variety of sources
3. Graphs can be merged from multiple Sources
4. New Collection class RdfEdgeList
5. Changed the RdfEdgeCollection to allow easier access to the edges in 
the collection
6. Added Edges property to the Graph to allow edge centric access to the 
7. Passes all positive RDF Parser tests
8. Generates errors for all RDF Negative parser tests
9. Fixes numerous bugs

For a full list of changes see the Drive Changelog at 

This release has some changes to the API and may break some code out 
there. I have tried to keep the changes to a minimum and consequently 
any breaks in your code can be fixed by a line or two. If you have any 
questions about the changes feel free to email me and I'll be happy to 
help out.

I would like to thank everyone who sent me feedback, bug reports, 
feature requests, encouragement and bits and pieces of code.

I also added a few new features to the Drive RDF Browser and that is 
available for download as well. I'll be adding some more articles and 
documentation to the site in a few days about details of how some of the 
things in Drive work.

All in all I hope this is a big step towards a mature API for RDF 
Processing in C# and .NET.
