With this merge of Ben Martin's awesome work, AbiWord trunk (what will
become AbiWord 2.9.0, the first 2.9 development release) has gained an
awesome new feature: support for RDF. For those unfamiliar with RDF, you
can read all about it on Wikipedia:
It defines a metadata standard that AbiWord now supports. This means you
can annotate pieces of content with generic "metadata". For example you
could attach contact data to a person who's name is mentioned in a text
The use-cases are of course endless, so feel free to come up with cool
use-cases, write patches, and we will gladly integrate them into AbiWord
(or let you integrate them).
A sample document containing RDF is attached. If you build AbiWord with
debug support (--enable-debug) then you will find some fun RDF debugging
menu items in the Collaborate menu (make sure to compile with
--enable-plugins="collab"). There is no particular reason why this in
the Collaborate menu, it just had to go somewhere temporarily.
There is full RDF support in AbiWord's internal model to hold the
metadata. This work also supports reading and writing the metadata to
AbiWord's native file format .abw and to OpenDocument .odt documents.
Adding metadata to a document that is collaboratively being worked on
will automatically synchronize the metadata as well.
Surely there are certain bugs that need to be hashed out, but that's to
be expected in a development release :)
