[Monetdb-developers] MonetDB release meeting

About StandOff support:

- I would like to know whether the multi-document-in-one-container-feature
is going to be in the release. Without this feature its probably going to be
less trouble to bugfix the axis steps (they are currently broken due to the
new bat-representation of XML-documents). 
- also, with a minor checkin we have runtime-option (instead of
compilerflag) support for the StandOff axis steps.


p.s. there are currently still 50 open bugs for MonetDB... and I haven't
even tried the update-branch yet ;) if you would ask me, it seems that a
quick release is not possible.

SQL has initial support for triggers, have to fill in the details arround
the release as it will get some more support soon.

Full support for local/global temporaries (which was a lot of 
 changes in the transaction layer, net effect should be faster

Session variable support using @varname.

Indeed this is besides bug fixes / stability
	(an important bug in primary key constraints was fixed)

I'd like to assess the stability the comming weeks using dots and possibly
some other test frameworks.
