Dear all,

Aligned with the XML Prague 2016 Conference, we are more than happy to
provide you with a great new version of BaseX, your XML database
system and XQuery processor! These are the new features:

 - Project View: all modules of the project are now parsed in the background
 - Create Database, Properties: easy access to advanced database options
 - Sort Dialog: order by column positions and locale collation

 - New Token Index: speedy token lookups in DITA and HTML documents
 - Including full support for incremental and main-memory databases
 - XQuery optimizations for fn:contains-token, fn:tokenize, fn:idref

 - Cancel server-side queries via %rest:single annotation
 - DBA query editor: faster querying, better responsivity

 - Database Module: ADDCACHE support (caching of large results)
 - Direct output of binary data with new 'basex' serialization method
 - Better XQuery 3.1 compliance: string constructors, new functions
 - Java bindings: address specific Java function signatures
 - User Module: create users and grant permissions in one step

 - Many Wiki articles have been revised and updated

A big thank you to our sponsors, which made some new features possible
and available to everyone, and a special shout-out to Jens Erat, who
realized the new token index!

We are looking forward to your feedback,

BaseX Team
