Release 8.6 represents an important milestone in Saxonica's
progressive implementation of the XPath 2.0, XSLT 2.0, and
XQuery 1.0 specifications. Saxon 8.6 is aligned with the W3C
Candidate Recommendation published on 3 November 2005. It is
a complete and conformant implementation, providing all the
mandatory features of those specifications and nearly all the
optional features.
Saxon is available in two versions. Saxon-B is a non-schema-aware
processor, and is available as an open-source product, free of
charge, from SourceForge. It is designed to conform to the basic
conformance level of XSLT 2.0, and the equivalent level of
functionality in XQuery 1.0. Saxon-SA is the schema-aware version
of the package, and is available as a commercially supported
product from Saxonica Limited.
This package provides the Basic XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 processor.
Includes the command line interfaces and the JAVA APIs; also
includes a standalone XPath API that doesn't depend on JAXP 1.3.
