The XML Query WG has announced what they belive is the completed release of the test suite for XQuery. All in all, it contains a whopping 14500 test cases. That’s what the WG think is necessary to fully test the complete specification, all 239 pages of it. I think it will be a crucial tool for ensuring combability between different XQuery implementations and might make XQuery skip the long period of incompability that most other specifications has to endure. I just wish that the SVG WG would make the same prioritizes, instead of trying to release yet another bloated spec long before the previous is even close to being proven and successful.
