   Announce: eXist 0.7

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I am pleased to announce a new release of eXist Open Source XML
Database. Version 0.7 is available for download at
http://exist-db.org. This release represents a major step forward with
respect to stability and performance. The list of changes is quite
long, please refer to http://exist-db.org/changes.html for a complete

The most important changes include: The native storage backend is now
secure for concurrent write access by multiple clients. The
performance bottleneck experienced in earlier versions when indexing
large document collections has been fixed. Scalability has
improved. Storage sizes for nodes and indexes have been substantially
reduced. All indexes are now organized on a collection basis resulting
in a considerable performance gain when querying large
collections. Additionally, the new version contains improved APIs,
many bugfixes, experimental support for XSL on the server and a number
of minor feature additions.

eXist is an Open Source native XML database with pluggable storage
backends and support for fulltext search. XML is either stored in the
internal, native XML-DB or an external RDBMS. The search engine has
been designed to provide fast XPath queries, using indexes for all
element, text and attribute nodes. eXist is lightweight and well
suited for large document collections. The server is accessible
through easy to use HTTP and XML-RPC interfaces and supports the
XML:DB API for Java programming.
