X-Hive have released a demo of an XQuery implementation, while Ipedo have announced a new version of their database, including SVG management capabilities.

X-Hive's query implementations works over XML documents stored in the X-Hive/DB database, still an unusual claim among existing query implementations. It claims to implement 74 out of the 78 XQuery use cases. The demo is available on X-Hive's web site.

Version 2.0 of Ipedo's XML Database includes several new features geared towards content-driven XML applications. They include:

  • Free-text searching over XML documents
  • SVG management: includes image search and dynamic image inclusion
  • Distributed database management
  • Intregrated XSLT transformation
  • Large document processing (up to 1GB)

Ipedo XML Database 2.0 is a commercial product. More information is available from their web site.
