Ripple is a dedicated scripting language for the Semantic Web. Ripple
programs not only query the Semantic Web, but also reside within it as RDF
data structures, forming a global network of interlinked programs. Ripple
is best classified as a relational stack language, closely related to
functional stack languages such as Joy, Factor, and Cat. As a Semantic Web
interface, Ripple is a fast, text-based linked data crawler and browser
with all of the flexibility of a Turing-complete programming language.  

New features include streaming query results, floating point math, RDF
document primitives, literal reification and type-casting primitives,
string and regular expression primitives, hooks into selected Semantic Web
services, owl:sameAs smushing for backwards compatibility, an extension
loader, concurrent HTTP connections for faster crawling, crawler
etiquette, more unit tests and an improved launcher script, and a
context-preserving TriG cache.
