  • User-agent: Mutt/1.5.9i

The following announcement is on http://www.w3.org/ today;
I will update http://www.w3.org/XML and /XML/Query later today,
but the new documents are available from http://www.w3.org/TR/

If you have implemented any of these specifications -- and
especially if you will be running tests -- please contact me.


XSLT 2.0, XML Query and XPath 2.0 Are W3C Candidate Recommendations

2005-11-03: W3C is pleased to announce eight Candidate Recommendations
for XSLT, XML Query and XPath. Comments are welcome through 28 February.
XSLT transforms documents into different markup or formats. Important
for databases, search engines and object repositories, XML Query can
perform searches, queries and joins over collections of documents. Both
XSLT 2 and XQuery use XPath expressions and operate on XPath Data Model
instances. Read the press release and visit the XML home page. (News

* XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 2.0:
  Transforms data model instances (XML and non-XML) into other
  documents including into XSL-FO for printing
* XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language:
  An XML-aware syntax for querying collections of structured and
  semi-structured data both locally and over the Web
* XML Syntax for XQuery 1.0 (XQueryX):
  A precise representation in XML of the XML Query language,
  suitable for machine processing and introspection
* XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0:
  Expression syntax for referring to parts of XML documents
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model (XDM):
  Representation and access for both XML and non-XML sources
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators:
  The functions you can call in XPath expressions and the operations
  you can perform on XPath 2.0 data types
* XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization:
  How to output the results of XSLT 2.0 and XML Query evaluation in
  XML, HTML or as text
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Formal Semantics:
  The type system used in XQuery and XSLT 2 via XPath defined
  precisely for implementers
* Working Drafts also published:
      o XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Text:
	A full-text retrieval facility for XPath, XSLT and XML Query
      o XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Text Use Cases:
	Examples for full-text search over data model collections
