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

Hi All,

My efforts on XSLT 2.0 haven't faltered - they've just been in a bit of a hiatus over the winter. With summer coming I'm looking to reinvigorate the project and start things up again.

You are right - the business model was wrong. Getting the business model right is challenging.

The design of the XSLT 2.0 implementation using libxslt involves creating a separate libxslt2 library. It is not quite a drop-in replacement, but is close to it. It does use xmlDoc structures, but not the xpath module.
