We are pleased to announce the first release (beta version 0.9) of  
Zorba. Zorba is a general purpose XQuery processor implementing in C++  
the W3C family of specifications. It is not an XML database. The query  
processor has been designed to be embeddable in a variety of  
environments such as other programming languages extended with XML  
processing capabilities, browsers, database servers, XML message  
dispatchers, or smartphones. Zorba runs on most platforms and is  
available under the Apache license v2.


In this first release the following functionalities are implemented:

XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 (as in the W3C recommendation) except modules  
and only limited support for schema validation.
XQuery Update Facility 1.0 (as in the evolving W3C recommendation).
An in-memory replaceable XML store implementing the XQuery Data Model  
(XDM) W3C recommendation
For any questions about Zorba, contact us at  “zorba at zorba- 

Best regards,
Dana Florescu, on behalf of the Zorba Team
