XQuery Update Facility implementors,

The XQuery Update Facility version 1.0 test suite [1] is complete and 
the XML Query Working Group is awaiting test results from 
implementations of the specification [2].

We currently have adequate implementation test results to progress 
the specification from Candidate Recommendation to Proposed 
Recommendation (the penultimate stage of processing in the W3C, 
followed only by Recommendation).  However, we do not yet have any 
test results from implementations that support the XML syntax for 
XQuery (XQueryX) or from implementations that support the Static 
Typing feature [4].  Both of these features have been marked At Risk 
[5].  A feature that has been marked At Risk may be deleted from the 
specification upon its publication as a Proposed Recommendation if 
insufficient implementation experience of the feature has been reported.

The XML Query WG has determined that it will continue to solicit 
implementation reports through 2010-03-31 (31 March 2010) from 
implementations that support the XQueryX feature and/or the Static 
Typing feature.  After that date, the WG will make a determination 
whether to publish a Proposed Recommendation without one or both of 
the features.

If either of these features are important to you, your 
implementation, and/or your customer base, please consider submitting 
an implementation report (test suite results) showing the results of 
evaluating those features in the test suite.  If you are able to 
generate test suite results for those features, but are unable or 
unwilling to submit your test results publicly (e.g., because of a 
corporate policy), you can submit them anonymously.  If you wish to 
submit such results anonymously, please send them to the W3C Staff 
Contact for the XML Query WG, Liam Quin, at liam@w3.org.  Liam will 
strip from the submitted results all information that can identify 
your organization and your implementation before incorporating them 
into the collected test suite results.

We await your implementation reports!

Thanks,
    Jim
    XML Query WG Chair
