XMLDB uses an RDBMS to persist arbitrary XML documents. Due to its storage mechanism, searching for and recalling documents is extremely quick. You can also perform XSL translation on documents with surprising speed. The library can be used in any program to store libxml2 documents. A PHP module is also included, making XMLDB into a complete three-tier Web application development suite.

Release Notes: Some developer documentation has been added, and some tweaks have been made to protagonist. The licensing issues have been cleaned up. xmldb is (and always was intended to be) under the GNU LGPL. This is now more clear in the source and documentation. Attributes are now supported, but the schema support still doesn't know about them. All database access is now abstracted away from the main library, so writing drivers for other databases is now quite trivial.
Release Notes: Minor bugfixes were made. Much better xsd schema support has been included in the library. A GNOME-based GUI, called protagonist, has been started. This is included in the xmldb source distribution.
Release Notes: Some working examples and an installation document, read and import executables will read from and import into the xmldb, and a PHP extension which can read and translate documents in the xmldb.
