12.02.2014 16:40

Dear all,

thanks for your support! We are very pleased to announce BaseX 7.8 (the XMLPrague Edition)! The new version was designed to further increase your productivity, no matter if you develop feature-rich XQuery applications or use BaseX as a light-weight XMLDB. You can expect the following great features:

  • A new project view allows you to open, edit and manage your project files directly in the GUI and search files and contents in realtime.
  • The integrated editor provides many new short cuts and code completions for writing XQuery modules.
  • Delete and insert operations are executed faster than ever before, values are updated in-place whenever possible, and a new convenience operator has been added for transform expressions.
  • XQuery functions are now inlined and further optimized. Tail call detection and static typing has been improved, and (sub)sequences are processed much faster.
  • Various XQuery Modules have been enhanced (JSON, CSV, Unit, Map, XQuery, Full-Text, EXPath File), and the EXPath Binary Module has been added.
  • BaseX is now available in Russian and Spanish. Thank you to Oleksandr Shpak and Carlos Marcos!

We are looking forward to your feedback,

BaseX Team
