Dear all,

you might be interested in our new XQuery engine "GCX"
which is now available for download.

We have just released the first version of GCX as open-source
software under the Berkeley Software Distribution license (BSD).

GCX is an in-memory query engine designed for memory-efficient
XQuery evaluation against large XML documents. The prototype
supports a powerful fragment of the XQuery language, with nested
for-expressions, child- and descendant axes, and joins.

The C++ source code, binaries for Linux and Windows, and more
about GCX can be found at


Your feedback, questions, and suggestions for improvement are all welcome.
