The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group would like to 
announce the availability of version 0.9.4 of the XML Query Test Suite 
(XQTS) at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/.

XQTS 0.9.4 is the last interim version of the test suite that we plan to 
deliver. It contains all of the tests that will exist when the test suite 
has been completed. The test suite has grown substantially since our last 
release; 10,400 test cases have become 14,500 test cases. 

Looking ahead, we are planning to release XQTS 1.0 on July 7, 2006. At 
that time, we will ask implementers of XQuery to run the test suite and to 
send us their results by Aug. 18 (a six-week period). If we receive enough 
positive feedback, then we will be able to start planning our transition 
to Proposed Recommendation.

We request that submittors re-read our guidelines if they have not done so 
recently and  follow the guidelines for the transformation of queries and 
for the comparison of results as closely as possible. While we have 
provided a mechanism for submittors to tell us about any deviations that 
have been made, we hope that this will be used sparingly. 

To date, we have received the results of running XQTS with four 
implementations of XQuery: Saxon-SA, xq2xsl, X-Hive/DB, and one anonymous 
implementation. A report that reflects these results is available from our 
web page. We will update this report as new results are received.
