Re: [xml-dev] Re: [ANN] Zorba 2.0: complete XQuery/XSLT processor(C++,open source, Apache license)

 >Currently, there is only one XSLT 2.0 processor, and that's Saxon.

Well, I would agree that Saxon is the only product that matters, but for 
the record, it doesn't have the field entirely to itself. There are 
products from Altova, IBM, Intel, XQSharp, and MarkLogic, and I've heard 
rumours of about four others under development, though no-one knows if 
they will ever see the light of day.

More to the point, there's a gaping hole in the market for an open 
source XSLT 2.0 processor that runs on the LAMP stack. People in that 
environment are still using XSLT 1.0, but not because they want to, 
rather because they have no other option.

If you've implemented an XQuery 1.0 processor then you're tantalizingly 
close to XSLT 2.0 support anyway (David Carlisle once wrote a translator 
that compiled XSLT 2.0 into XQuery 1.0).
