[ANN] First release of XQSharp: XQuery for the .NET Framework

The XQSharp team are pleased to announce the first release of XQSharp.  
XQSharp is a fast, schema-aware, standards compliant XQuery processor 
built for the Microsoft .NET platform.  It has been developed by 
Clinical & Biomedical Computing Ltd., a member of the W3C.

XQSharp 0.9 Technical Preview includes a command line processor which is 
ideally suited to run ad-hoc queries against multiple files and is 
completely free to download and use from http://www.xqsharp.com

XQSharp has been written entirely in C# and has been designed to adhere 
closely to the .NET style guidelines.  Its API has been modelled closely 
on the System.XML.XPath classes and operates on the IXPathNavigable 
interface so fits in well with the rest of the framework classes.  We 
aim to be releasing the API for free in the next release of the product.

In the longer term we aim to release a Microsoft Visual Studio plugin 
allowing convenient editing and running of both ad-hoc and repeated-use 

We also aim to add support for XSLT 2.0, and support for updating 
documents with XQuery Update, whilst keeping the core of the product in 
line with the latest XQuery specifications.

If you have any problems, queries, comments or feature requests, please 
pay a visit to our forum at http://www.xqsharp.com/forum
