Kraken is an application for managing knowledge objects, which can be documents, remote or locally cached Web pages, personal information, todo list items, appointments, and so on. It is especially useful for researchers or students to manage their information. Users can annotate these knowledge objects with metadata, perform complex queries, and present the results as HTML pages. Kraken uses RDF as its native format, allowing its data to be easily read by external applications.

Release Notes: This release brings bugfixes and user interface improvements. This is a relatively stable and usable release. Expect only small bugfixes in this branch, as the development moved to the Web-based version of this software.
Release Notes: This is the last release of the 2.0 series, and (mostly) completes Kraken as a single user knowledge editing and querying tool. The currently supported metadata includes BibTeX bibliography data, notes, and opinion/ranking. The querying and Web page generation was significantly improved, and now supports a rich set of filtering and sorting algorithms.
Release Notes: This release completes the kraken as a command line data entry tool. The RDF/OWL data formats are completed. The query framework is basically complete and working. The HTML output was greatly improved and features multi-file output and multiple queries in individual boxes ("Web portal look").
Release Notes: This new version includes the transition to the RDF-based formats, support for opinion-based ranking, and BibTeX to RDF parsing. The interface was changed to conversational because of the explosion of command line options.
