proxy server settings added
• advanced TagSoup options added for importing HTML files
• XQuery: faster traversal of full-text index entries via ft:tokens()
• Command-line: embedded readline and history support via JLine
• XQuery 3.0: annotation added, updated EQName syntax (Q{uri}name)
• opened databases are now pinned OS-wide to reduce write conflicts
• HTML5 serialization of query results
• a printable version of our Wiki documentation

All your feedback and questions are welcome. If you will be attending the EDBT Conference next week, we are looking forward to seeing you there,
