Hi Gijs,

thank you very much, these are great news.

I just finished installing in my ubuntu 8.04 both xquery with monet4
and sql with monet5.

Everything worked fine for me!

One small comment is that it seems that you have compiled the client
package without the readline support (libreadline), which just makes
the mclient little harder to use since there is no history and editing
with arrow keys:) Other than that everything seem to work great:)

thank you again!
