The requirements document for XPath 2.0 is here:


It's been out for over a year. I don't think it has really received all 
that much feedback. I gather these are features that at least some XPath 
users have asked for.

I think there is a clear vision behind XPath 1.0 and a clear vision for 
XQuery. Then the obvious question is this: which things in XQuery are 
useful in XPath? Answering that question is the vision behind XPath 2.0. 
Concrete feedback on how we are doing is always appreciated - which 
features do you want, and why?

In practice, I think most people are thinking of XPath 2.0 as the part of 
XQuery that gets used in XSLT.
