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.
