[Abiword RDF -- concluded on 2013/04]

Abiword is an open source word processing application with advanced collaboration features. The project is to improve RDF support in abiword with the goal of increasing user adoption and interest in the technology.

The following improvements are foreseen:

  • Support for office:annotation-end in Abiword's ODF handling
  • C++ Semantic Objects which relate to common RDF vocabularies.
  • Drag and Drop to/from Semantic Objects

Presenting drag and drop possibilities, both from other applications into an ODF file, and from an ODF file to other applications, should entice users to see ODF as a solid single file container for storage and transmission of not only words but also semantics.

Project run by Ben Martin, Australia
