<h2 id="D2003-02-13-V0.9.12">2003-02-13 Redland Version 0.9.12 Released</h2>
<p>
<strong>FORMAT CHANGE</strong> The persistent storage format was
changed to support RDF typed literals and this will require an
upgrade of any existing Berkeley/Sleepycat DB stores created by
Redland 0.9.11 or earlier. A utility <em>redland-db-upgrade</em> is
provided that creates an updated store from an existing one.<br />
<strong>API CHANGE</strong> <a href="docs/api/iterator.html">Iterator</a> and <a href="docs/api/stream.html">Stream</a> classes. The next/get_next method is split into get_object always returning a shared object and next methods. get_context method added. (get_object is called current in higher level language APIs)<br />
<strong>API CHANGE</strong> <a href="docs/api/model.html">Model</a> class. Method add_statement no longer takes ownership of the passed in statement. The caller now retains ownership.<br />
<strong>API CHANGE</strong> <a href="docs/api/model.html">Model</a> class. Method add_statements no longer frees the passed in librdf_stream; the caller must free it now.<br />
<strong>API CHANGE</strong> <a href="docs/api/node.html">Node</a> and <a href="docs/api/model.html">Model</a> classes. Added RDF Datatyped Literals. Other literal is_wf_xml constructors and methods deprecated.<br />
<strong>API CHANGE</strong> All literals methods and constructors have no
mention of the never-used or supported XML Space argument which is not part
of an RDF literal.<br />
Added a script <a href="utils/update-api-0912.pl">utils/update-api-0912.pl</a>
to help automate the API changes as far as possible or warn about those
that cannot be automatically updated.<br />
Added contexts - Statements added to <a href="docs/api/model.html">Model</a> (when using a Storage that
supports contexts) can take an optional <a href="docs/api/node.html">Node</a>, returned by the new
get_context method on <a href="docs/api/iterator.html">Iterator</a> and <a href="docs/api/stream.html">Stream</a> classes.<br />
Many portability and compiling fixes (OSX, gcc 3.x, FreeBSD, non-gcc compiler)<br />

Added RDF/XML <a href="docs/api/serializer.html">Serializer</a> class and made higher level language APIs to it<br />
Update to <a href="http://librdf.org/raptor/">Raptor</a> version 0.9.8 (RDF/XML and N-Triples parser) - see
