    Sleepycat Software is pleased to announce:

    Berkeley DB XML 2.0.7

    Berkeley DB XML is a native XML database engine for use within your
    product. Made available as a C++ library with language bindings for
    Java, Perl, Python, PHP and Tcl Berkeley DB XML integrates directly into
    your application, it is not a standalone database server. Berkeley DB
    XML provides XQuery access into a database of document containers. XML
    documents are stored and indexed in their native format using Berkeley
    DB as the transactional database engine. Berkeley DB XML is one of the
    most sophisticated and reliable native XML database engine available today.

    The important new features and benefits of Berkeley DB XML 2.0.7 include:

    1. XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 (July 2004 draft)
    2. Node or whole document based storage
    3. Optional document validation
    4. Sophisticated document indexing to speed query access
    5. C++, Java, Perl, Python, TCL and now PHP APIs
    6. Command line access to document repositories
