Fenfire Loom 0.1beta1 has been released.

Loom is a focus+context RDF graph browser. RDF is the Resource
Description Framework developed by W3C, <http://www.w3.org/RDF>.
Focus+context means that there is always one 'focused' node,
shown in the middle of the window, and that the nodes connected
to the focused node are shown around it, as the 'context.'

Loom is a part of the Fenfire project, which is building a
RDF-based desktop environment where anything can be connected
to anything else. However, Loom can also be used on its own;
when the first release is complete, we will move it into
an independent project at Savannah.nongnu.org.

The release can be downloaded from:


This is a beta release. Expect there to be bugs. :-) Still, if you could find the time to download and test this release, your effort would be valued.

In fact, one bug has already been reported: The README tells you to "unzip" a precompiled version and then run "loom.jar". However, you simply need to download loom-0.1beta1.jar, and then you need to type::

    java -jar loom-0.1beta1.jar

This will be fixed in the final release.

The files in this release are:

loom-0.1beta1.jar (6 MB)
    An executable JAR file containing Loom and all dependencies.

    The Loom 0.1beta1 readme, including instructions for using the JAR.

loom-0.1beta1-src.tar.gz (6 MB)
    The source code for this release, along with the dependencies
    in binary form (you only need this and Apache Ant to compile Loom).

Our code is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

Thank you for your interest,
