"Software AG's Tamino takes a 'semantic' step"

The new version has a special developer's edition and includes
improvements made for developers, including:

expanded XQuery, XPath and text retrieval functions, including a

additional indexing capabilities for rapid query execution; 

improved handling of standard XML schemas; and 

a redesigned and more intuitive online tutorial.

Software AG is also offering special pricing for developers so they can
work on a pilot or proof of concept project without making an
enterprise-level investment, Champion said.

Further information is available at

If anyone's checked out the thesaurus and text retrieval functions, a 
brief report here would be much appreciated.
