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

For me the availability of a Free/Open Source xslt 2.0 engine would be
a significant game changer.  We use xslt 1.0 heavily and not really
out of choice.  Even in our java project there is some uneasiness
about about the variegated licence arrangements of saxon.  And, like
most java projects these days, we use a lot of maven and I heard some
time back that Norm has issues with distributing saxon in this way.
This has prevented me from using calabash which was sad.

Norm this is not to take issue with you.  You have obviously thought
everything through re saxon are free to distribute under whatever
arrangements suit you.

But it does really leave open quite some niche for a(nother) Free/Open
Source xslt 2.0 engine.

BTW looking at Zorba briefly I see it has swig interfaces so the php,
python, ruby etc bindings already exist which is nice.  And would be
easy enough to add tcl which is even nicer :-)

I understand Steve Ball was working on an xslt 2.0 engine for
libxml/libxslt but not sure what has happened to that.

However the main reason is that I don't see a compelling reason to use the features of XSLT 2.0, which appear to be primarily centred around support for XSD datatypes. If you use XSLT for publishing or content management rather than for enterprisey typed data manipulation in PSVIs, 1.0 is quite sufficient.
