[apologies for multiple postings]

W3C's XML Query and XSL Working Groups have just published five
updated Working Drafts of the following specifications:

XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery/

XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20/

XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-datamodel/

XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath-functions/

XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslt-xquery-serialization/

An updated Working Draft of the XSLT 2.0 specification is expected
to follow shortly.

The above working drafts include a number of changes made in response to
comments received during the Last Call period that ended on Feb. 15,
2004. The working groups are continuing to process these comments and
additional changes are expected. These documents reflect decisions taken
up to and including a face-to-face meeting in Redmond, WA, USA,
during the week of August 23, 2004. These decisions are recorded in
each document's Last Call issues list.

General discussion on the drafts can be done in the
www-ql@w3.org mailing list
(archives at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ql/ ).

Comments and feedback on the drafts solely addressed to the working
groups (like for instance, requests to open issues)
should instead be sent to public-qt-comments@w3.org
(archives at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-qt-comments/ ),
following the appropriate instructions that are present in the
Status section of each specification.
Note you can't subscribe to this list, as it's just used one-way to
send comments and issues (so, it is not a discussion forum, you can
and should use www-ql@w3.org for that).

Latest versions and news always available from the XML Query page
(http://www.w3.org/XML/Query ), which also contains:
+ links to the DIFFs from the previous editions of the specifications, and
+ updated Grammar Test Pages for XQuery and XPath2.
