I'm pleased to announce that a new release of the eXist open source native XML
database is now available on http://exist-db.org.
This is the first official release with support for XUpdate. Much effort
has also been invested to ensure that other character encodings than Latin 1
are correctly processed by the database as well as the query engine. This
applies in particular to East Asian languages and scripts. Further changes
include: important missing parts of the XPath spec have been implemented,
more synchronization and database corruption issues have been addressed,
interfaces improved, and dozens of bugs fixed.
eXist is a native XML database featuring efficient, index-based XPath query
processing, extensions for fulltext search, XUpdate support, and tight
integration with existing XML development tools like Cocoon2. The database is
lightweight and may be easily deployed in a number of ways, running either as
a stand-alone server process, inside a servlet engine, or directly embedded
into an application. eXist offers several interfaces to application
developers, including HTTP, XML-RPC, SOAP and WebDAV. It fully supports the
XML:DB API and the XUpdate specification.
