XQFTTS 1.0.0 is the initial public release of this test
suite. This release contains approximately 650 XQuery and XPath
Full Text 1.0 tests embedded into either XQuery 1.0 expressions or XPath
2.0 expressions. We encourage implementors of XQuery and XPath Full
Text to run XQFTTS 1.0.0 and send us their implementation reports.
Implementors who are familiar with the XML Query Test Suite (XQTS) found
http://www.w3.org/XML/Query/test-suite/ will discover that the
mechanisms used to run the two test suites are substantially
identical. XQFTTS 1.0.0 does not contain any tests
expressed in the XML syntax, known as XQueryX. A follow-up release
of XQFTTS is planned for the very near future that adds the XQueryX tests
to the existing tests.
We look forward to receiving reports that demonstrate sufficient
implementation experience to enable us to transition to Proposed
Recommendation in the third quarter or fourth quarter of 2009.
We will continue to maintain and enhance the test suite
after our transition to Proposed Recommendation.
