Release Notes: This release adds a new native backend which uses sequential files and btrees for the indexes. Besides MySQL and Oracle, PostgreSQL is now supported as a storage backend. The DOM implementation has been enhanced to handle namespaces, comments and processing instructions, and to preserve entities.
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.
