ANN: Krextor 0.2 (XML --XSLT--> RDF extraction framework)

Dear all,

  a new version of Krextor (0.2) has been released; see

New features:
* support for additional RDF features like blank nodes, inverse properties,
  multilingual literals, and datatypes.
* easier and more powerful interface for adding an output module for your
  favourite RDF notation, if you don't like RXR.
* enhanced coverage of RDF extraction from the OMDoc mathematical markup
  language, showing off many of the new features.
Krextor is an extensible XSLT-based framework for extracting RDF from XML,
supporting multiple input languages as well as multiple output RDF notations.
Krextor provides convenience templates that try to do “the right thing”™ in
many common cases, as to reduce the need for manually writing repetitive code.

Note: Currently not too many input and output formats are actually
implemented. However, Krextor was designed for easy extensibility. The idea is
that you have some semantic web application that works with RDF (e.g. for
querying or reasoning) but that most of your knowledge is hidden in XML
markup. Using Krextor and some suitable ontologies you can then specify a
mapping from XML markup to RDF in terms of these ontologies.

If you want to give it a try for your XML language or microformat, I'd be
happy to support you in doing so.
