The W3C's XML Query Working Group and XSL Working Group are pleased 
to announce the availability of version 1.0.0 of the Query and XPath 
Full Text 1.0 Test Suite (XQFTTS) at 

XQFTTS 1.0.0 is the initial public release of this test suite.  This 
release contains approximately 650 XQuery and XPath Full Text 1.0 
tests embedded into either XQuery 1.0 expressions or XPath 2.0 
expressions.  We encourage implementors of XQuery and XPath Full Text 
to run XQFTTS 1.0.0 and send us their implementation 
reports.  Implementors who are familiar with the XML Query Test Suite 
(XQTS) found at http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/ will discover 
that the mechanisms used to run the two test suites are substantially 
identical.  XQFTTS 1.0.0 does not contain any tests expressed in the 
XML syntax, known as XQueryX.  A follow-up release of XQFTTS is 
planned for the very near future that adds the XQueryX tests to the 
existing tests.

We look forward to receiving reports that demonstrate sufficient 
implementation experience to enable us to transition to Proposed 
Recommendation in the third quarter or fourth quarter of 2009.  We 
will continue to maintain and enhance the test suite after our 
transition to Proposed Recommendation.
