Subject: [ANN] Qizx 4.1 released
Qizx is an embeddable, high-speed, native XML indexing and query engine written in Java(TM), with the querying and processing capabilities of a fully fledged XML Query implementation. --------------------------------------------- What is new in version 4.1: * Qizx Server can now be installed in a few clicks thanks to a control tool that supports https, user accounts, handling of Windows services and firewall. This tool uses a bundled Jetty 7 server. * Support of more XQuery 1.1 features: function items (functions as objects), switch, standard try/catch, trigonometric functions. * Support of non-XML documents: any kind of text or binary data can be stored in Qizx databases in a new type of document. Metadata properties can be set on non-XML documents and queried in the same way as for XML documents. * Scalability improvements: Qizx 4.1 has been tested on very large databases (> 100 million documents) and optimized. A new "XL" build allows storing very large XML documents (over 2 Gb and up to 1000 Gb). Please visit http://www.xmlmind.com/qizx/changes.html for more details. -- Qizx is available in several editions: * The commercial product has 3 liberal licenses both for corporate application development, and for royalty-free distributable products. * The Free Engine edition is a fully functional version of Qizx which can be used for developing or in production. It is limited in database size (one Gigabyte of XML approximately). * Qizx/open is an open-source version of the XML Query interpreter of Qizx. Qizx/open has been available since 2003 and is recognized as one of the fastest and most advanced XML Query implementations.
