Clinical & Biomedical Computing Ltd. has released XQSharp 0.9, a free-as-in-beer XQuery processor for .NET platform. It includes a command line processor that can run ad-hoc queries against multiple files. According to Oliver Hallam, "Its API has been modelled closely on the System.XML.XPath classes and operates on the IXPathNavigable interface so fits in well with the rest of the framework classes. We aim to be releasing the API for free in the next release of the product. In the longer term we aim to release a Microsoft Visual Studio plugin allowing convenient editing and running of both ad-hoc and repeated-use queries."
