[ANN] BaseX 8.6: The Winter Edition

Christian Grün
Dear all,

BaseX 8.6 is out! The new version of our XML database system and
XQuery 3.1 processor includes countless improvements and
optimizations. Many of them have been triggered by your valuable
feedback, many others are the result of BaseX used in productive and
commercial environments.

The most prominent new features are:

 LOCKING
 - jobs without database access will never be locked
 - read transactions are now favored (adjustable via FAIRLOCK)

 RESTXQ
 - file monitoring was improved (adjustable via PARSERESTXQ)
 - authentication was reintroduced (no passwords anymore in web.xml)
 - id session attributes will show up in log data

 DBA
 - always accessible, even if job queue is full
 - pagination of table results

 INDEXING
 - path index improved: distinct values storage for numeric types

 XQUERY
 - aligned with latest version of XQuery 3.1
 - updated functions: map:find, map:merge, fn:sort, array:sort, ...
 - enhancements in User, Process, Jobs, REST and Database Module

 CSV DATA
 - improved import/export compatibility with Excel data

Visit http://basex.org to find the latest release, and check out

looking forward to your feedback. Enjoy!
