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.
