First stable release of the Gnome XSLT library
[ For those who were wondering if alternative OSes could be used count me in ] Hi all, I'm happy to announce the first stable release 1.0.0 of libxslt, the Gnome XSLT library (and version 2.4.0 of libxml2 the Gnome XML library). Libxslt is believed to implement all the XSLT-1.0 constructs, support a few "common" extensions and provide an extension framework. It also includes a simple to use command line interface 'xsltproc' with an XSLT profiler. It had been in use by early adopters for more than 3 months with a bias on DocBook document processing since it will be used by Gnome and KDE for formatting their documentation. It is suposed to be stable and fast enough for 'serious' usage, like formatting/chunking the DocBook Definitve Guide (15 mn and 60 MBytes of memory use). The C code and precompiled RPM packages for linux are available at ftp://xmlsoft.org/ The project pages are at: http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT/ http://xmlsoft.org/ This is free software available under the LGPL or a licence similar to the W3C IPR. It should be portable, it is know to work on Linux. BSD, Solaris, and there is Windows makefiles for MSC. The libraries are written in pure C and have no other requirement than the C standard and some POSIX constructs. The licences allows to embed it in commercial products. I would like to thanks Red Hat for supporting this effort since its inception in January this year, the various contributors to this project especially Bjorn Reese and William Brack, and everybody who reported bugs, provided patches, ideas or reused it in other projects (KDE, Gnome, AxKit, etc.), and the Gnome project in general http://www.gnome.org/ . I hope it will help reusing XSLT in areas where the price, processing cost or portability had been so far a problem.
