Release candidate 1.8-RC6

Here is the sixth release candidate for Michael 1.8. This version comes with a great work on the OAI interface of MICHAEL (harvester and repository). OAI is now more robust. Including the transition from Xalan to Saxon XSLT processor to format records therefore provides a gain on the speed and robustness of the OAI repositories.
The latest version of SDX 2.4, included in this version, comes with an HTML interface for OAI, very nice :-)

Release candidate 1.8-RC5

Here is the fifth release candidate for Michael 1.8. I know, I've writed "final release" for RC4, but I've found a bad bug in categorization results (in the publication module). So I prefer to released a new RC version. Please, forgive-me ;-)

Standalone eXist server available in SVN

You'll find in the SVN (file "software/exist-server") a standalone eXist server, of the same version as the server embedded eXist by Michael and runnable in Java 1.6 environment. The purpose of this tool is essentially data maintenance. It allows to get eXist on its own JVM, and therefore demand fewer resources than the embedded version. Once the modified data (restoration, updates, etc..), It is possible to replace the binary files (*. dbx) of the embedded eXist server.
Soon, I will propose a distribution for that.
Last words, before use, careful to inform the JAVA_HOME (see "bin/").
