Announce: XQuery Update Facility Test Suite, version 0.7

Jonathan Robie-2

The W3C XML Query WG has released version 0.7 of the XQuery Update
Facility Test Suite, which you can obtain from here:

This test suite corresponds to the XQuery Update Facility:

XQuery Update Facility 1.0

The XQuery Update Facility Test Suite was designed to test whether the
W3C XQuery Update Facility can be implemented interoperably as
published. If you have implemented the XQuery Update Facility, using
this test suite facility is a good way to ensure that your
implementation follows the specification, and to identify aspects of the
specification that should be changed if there are implementability
issues. Sending us your test suite results helps the XML Query Working
Group to satisfy the requirements to progress toward W3C Candidate
Recommendation status.

The XQuery Update Facility adds 4 new updating expressions to XQuery
1.0; insert, replace, rename, and delete. These expressions modify
instances of the XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model (XDM). The XQuery
Update Facility also adds a non-updating expression, transform, which
returns an XDM instance that has been created by copying existing XDM
instances and then modifying them.
