Wolfgang Meier has released eXist 1.2.6:
an open source database management system entirely built on XML technology. It stores XML data according to the XML data model and features efficient, index-based XQuery processing.
eXist-db supports many (web) technology standards making it an excellent application platform:
- XQuery 1.0 / XPath 2.0
- XSLT 1.0 (using Apache Xalan) or XSLT 2.0 (optional using Saxon)
- HTTP interfaces: REST, WebDAV, SOAP, XMLRPC, Atom Publishing Protocol
- XML database specific: XMLDB, XQJ/JSR-225 (under development), XUpdate, XQuery update extensions (to be aligned with the new XQuery Update Facility 1.0
1.2.6 fixes several scary database corruption issues.
