I'm pleased to announce the second beta for eXist 1.0. eXist is an open 
source native XML database, featuring index-based XQuery processing, 
XUpdate support, and much more.

This release benefits from a lot of testing done by other projects, and 
fixes many instabilities and database corruptions that were still 
present in the previous version. In particular, the XUpdate 
implementation should now have reached a stable state. Concurrent 
XUpdates are fully supported. The XQuery implementation has matured, 
adding support for collations, computed constructors, and more. Module 
loading has been improved, allowing more complex web interfaces to be 
written entirely in XQuery (see new admin interface). Finally, there's a 
new WebDAV module, a reindex/repair option and support for running eXist 
as a system service.

Downloads and demos are available at
