Dear all,

A new Summer Edition of BaseX is available! Our XML database system
and XQuery 3.1 processor provides the following new stunning features:

 - all registered database jobs are now centrally administered
 - jobs can be scheduled (periodical execution, start/end time)
 - job results can be cached and retrieved later on
 - new Jobs Module: XQuery functions for managing jobs
 - new commands: JOBS [LIST|RESULT|STOP]
 - DBA: visualization of currently registered jobs

 - parallel execution via xquery:fork-join (thank you, James Wright!)
 - alignments with the latest changes in the XQuery 3.1 specification
 - easy chaining of update operations with the 'update' keyword
 - numerous optimizations, smarter rewritings and heuristics

 - File, Conversion, Fetch Module: handling of invalid XML characters
 - Inspection Module: inspect:function-annotations added

 - LOGPATH: custom path for logging data
 - CACHETIMEOUT: timeout for dropping cached job results
 - AUTHMETHOD: `custom` added to skip authentication

BaseX Team
