We are pleased to announce a new version 0.4 of the Sedna XML database
system.

New:
- Support for value indices based on B-tree
- Support for regular expressions (based on PCRE-library) for processing
structured textual data that are not marked up
- Support for SQL connection from XQuery
- Apache HTTP server module for Sedna
- Terminal utility to work with Sedna interactively
- Source code distributive for Linux is now independent of binary libraries


Features:
- Available for free in open source form under Apache License 2.0
- Native XML DBMS implemented from scratch in C/C++ and Scheme
- Support for the W3C XQuery language (partial support for the latest
working drafts of 4th April 2005)
- Support for a declarative update language
- Native XML data storage structures designed for efficient support for both
queries and updates (no underlying relational or another DBMS). The XML data
storage is based on descriptive schema (derived from data, also called
DataGuide)
- Efficient support for stand-alone XML documents with arbitrary structures
and collections of XML documents with similar structures
- Structural indices (based on descriptive schema) and value indices (based
on B-tree)
- Support for regular expressions (based on PCRE-library) for processing
structured textual data that are not marked up
- Support for SQL connection from XQuery
- Java API, Scheme API and C API for application development
- Open client/server protocol over sockets that allows implementing APIs for
other programming languages
- Integration with Apache HTTP server (via Apache module)
- Administration via easy-to-use command line utilities
- Supplied with extensive documentation including Quick Start
- Support for Windows and Linux platforms

Please, notice that using the client/server protocol you can easily
implement APIs for your favorite programming language. We will be happy to
support you in doing this.
