Thanks for the plug. I didn't even realize this thread matched the subje=
line. I read the first message quickly, didn't quite understand it, and =
skipped the whole thread (sort of thing I have to do often these days).
I think you pretty much said all I would have said. 4Suite supports XML =
storage, XUpdates, XSLT/XPath, XInclude/xml:base, RDF and RDF query (usin=
Versa), to mention a few things. Python and XSLT APIs over HTTP, FTP or =
protocol, a Web-based management dashboard, or just good old command-line=
One note is that we're dropping the name "4Suite server" because it seems=
confuse a lot of people. The whole shebang is just "4Suite" now, and the=
server component, now called the repository, is just a built-in component=
=2E We =
hope to have an available setup option to omit the server code for those =
don't want it.
