SSDN AdminSubject: Help Support XQuery in the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
Author: SSDN Admin
Date: 28 Apr 2005 01:51 PM
Dear Stylus Studio Friends:

Microsoft recently announced that they are dropping XQuery from their next release of the .NET Framework, 2.0 (Whidbey). Since Microsoft ships .NET Framework only every 3 or so years, cutting XQuery from Whidbey means that the next opportunity for XQuery to find its way into .NET Framework won't be until around 2009, and even then it's far from a sure thing. That's why it's so important that the community of XQuery developers makes XQuery a priority for Microsoft.

Stylus Studio believes that XQuery's has broader applicability then just an XML querying language but is also an important mid-tier data integration and Web service enabling technology, and therefore should not be dropped from the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. Stylus Studio is asking for any developer who shares this vision and to sign the petition online at: http://www.stylusstudio.com/xqueryforall/
