Galax 1.1: released ... and in Debian/unstable!

After a long release cycle, a couple of days ago Galax 1.1 (the first release of the 1.x series) was finally released. Galax is a free (as in freedom) implementation of XQuery, the XML Query language. Galax is Schema-aware, statically typed, and really fast.

The release enjoyed a good synergy among the Debian packagers (erm ... /me) and upstream authors which were happy to exchange patches and let me test drive the release before making it public, to check whether everything was fine for Debian or not. Thank you Jerome and Mary!

Thanks to these efforts Galax 1.1 is now available in Debian/unstable. Enjoy your XQueries!
