ANN: eXist 0.3 released

Since there have been many discussions here concerning XML and
relational databases, I would like to announce, that I've released
version 0.3 of eXist, available at http://exist.sourceforge.net.

* Speed improvements (especially when retrieving document-content for

* Loading of documents into the db is a lot faster now (data is first
written to temporary files and batch-loaded later).

* One may specify which element's content should be fulltext indexed.

* The http-backend is thread-safe and uses connection-pooling.
