[[
    2005-04-04: The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group
    released twelve Working Drafts for the XQuery, XPath and XSLT languages.
    Seven are in last call through 13 May. Important for databases, search
    engines and object repositories, XML Query can perform searches, queries
    and joins over collections of documents. XSLT transforms documents into
    different markup or formats. Both XQuery and XSLT 2 use XPath
    expressions and operate on XPath Data Model instances.
]]

Please note that we have changed the procedure for sending
public comments on the Last Call Working Drafts.  You should
check the Status section near the statr of each document for
instructions -- we have moved to using Bugzilla.

The following documents were published:

* XML Query Use Cases:
  The motivations of XML Query explained in examples
* XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0:
  Expression syntax for referring to parts of XML documents - Last Call
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model:
  For both XML and non-XML sources - Last Call
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators:
  The functions you can call in XPath expressions and the operations
  you can perform on XPath data types - Last call
* XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization:
  Defines how to output the results of XSLT 2.0 and XML Query
  evaluation in XML, HTML or as text - Last Call
* XSL Transformations (XSLT) Version 2.0:
  Using XML schemas, transforms data model instances (XML and
  non-XML) into other documents including into XSL-FO for printing -
  Last Call
* XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language:
  A non-XML, Perl-like syntax for querying collections of structured
  and semi-structured data both locally and over the Web - Last Call
* XML Syntax for XQuery 1.0 (XQueryX):
  A precise representation in XML of the XML Query language,
  suitable for machine processing and introspection - Last Call
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Text Use Cases:
  Examples for full-text search over data model collections
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Full-Text:
  A full-text retrieval facility for XPath, XSLT and XML Query
* XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Formal Semantics:
  The type system used in XQuery and XSLT 2 via XPath defined
  precisely for implementers
* Building a Tokenizer for XPath or XQuery:
  Strategies for writing an XPath parser (this is a new document)
