Release Notes: This release provides a new Range Index, which can accelerate your XQuery code and has proven to be up to 100 times faster than previous versions. Other notable changes include a rewritten crash recovery procedure, a major update of the full text index based on Lucene 4, and many mission critical bugfixes. Concerning security, this release implements the full Unix permissions model, including setuid and setgid bits to allow stored XQuery modules to escalate permissions. The release candidate is feature complete, but not yet recommended for production use.
Release Notes: LTS is a long-term support version of eXistdb. It is available as an especially tested and maintained subscription of the community edition, establishing a stable application platform for professional and enterprise users. Additional service-level agreements complement the new commercial offerings. LTS addresses the needs of users who require a stable version or do not have the capacity to follow the Open Source community in search of improvements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes many instabilities and database corruptions that were still present in the previous version. 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 the new admin interface). Finally, there's a new WebDAV module, a reindex/repair option, and support for running eXist as a system service.
Release Notes: This release adds support for XQuery 1.0, including static type checks, modules, constructors, Java binding, dynamic execution, and many extension functions. The new XQueryServlet and XQueryGenerator for Cocoon provide a simple way to write entire Web applications in XQuery. In addition, the release contains many bugfixes, improved locking and caching strategies, and support for binary resources.
Release Notes: This is the first official release with support for XUpdate. Much effort has 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. Important missing parts of the XPath spec have been implemented, more synchronization and database corruption issues have been addressed, interfaces have been improved, and dozens of bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes many bugs found in 0.9, including eof exceptions, out-of-memory errors, and corrupted database files. It also adds further performance optimizations with respect to indexing and querying speed. New features include the highlighting of search terms in query results, simpler database startup, access to index information, new Cocoon examples, and an IzPack-based installer.
Release Notes: This release fixes two of the remaining weak points of eXist, indexing performance and scalability. Storing more than just a few megabytes in a single database collection is no longer a problem; index files consume less disk space, and indexing speed has improved by an order of magnitude. New features include support for user authentication, access control, and basic XInclude on the server.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release, which fixes some minor but annoying bugs found in 0.8. Several incompatibilities between the local and remote XML:DB drivers have been removed. Both drivers should now behave as expected. Additionally, a bug leading to damaged db files when inserting non-wellformed documents has been fixed and the collection()-function has been extended to select more than one collection in a query.
Release Notes: The database engine may now run either as a stand-alone server process, embedded into an application, or inside a servlet context. Applications built with eXist may be distributed as a single .war file. The XML:DB API implementation supports embedded as well as remote access to the database. Additional changes include a new SOAP interface, WebDAV integration, performance improvements, and many bugfixes.
