1.4 Release Candidate

A release candidate of version 1.4 of the eXist Open Source Native XML Database is now available for download. Among other things, this release improves eXist's XQuery processing thanks to a better and more robust handling of in memory documents. It features faster and customizable full text indexing by transparently integrating Lucene into the XQuery engine. eXist now also provides a lightweight URL rewriting and MVC framework (which in part replaces Cocoon), along with support for XProc, XForms and many new XQuery extension modules.
