from fm, changes include: "SRW/SRU support. Bugfixes for event handling. C++ compile fixes (for more picky GCC). The YAZ proxy is now a separate project and is no longer part of YAZ++ ... The proxy supports SRW/SRU/Z39.50 incoming connections and any Z39.50 backend server, CQL conversions, XML, and XSLT."
Adam writes: "The ZING Initiative (Z39.50 International Next Generation), under the auspices of the Z39.50 Maintenance Agency at the Library of Congress, is pleased to announce Version 1.0 of SRW and CQL. SRW ("Search/Retrieve for the Web") is a web-service-based protocol which aims to integrate access across networked resources, and to promote interoperability between distributed databases by providing a common platform. SRW features both SOAP and URL-based access mechanisms (SRW and SRU respectively) to provide for a wide range of possible clients. It uses CQL, the Common Query Language, which provides a powerful yet intuitive means of formulating searches."
