A short update on various code refactorings of my raptor RDF parser over the last month or so. I have been pulling apart an 140K C source file into chunks by functionality. This was needed for a bunch of reasons, mostly because it had been evolved rather than designed, and was getting embarassing to look at.

The result is that the API is smaller and more flexible and I can soon pull out the redland URI dependencies, so that the same raptor library can be used standalone in applications while working efficiently in redland.

Apart from moving the same code around I also got time to improve the XML error handling so that it can deal with XML it doesn't understand, so it now handles all the libxml XML tests without falling over. And killing a bunch of other bugs. The bug list is actually getting shorter.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
