Hello all,

I've just released a new version of my open-source smallx XML infoset  
pipelining technology.

This release contains several significant enhancements:

1. The streaming XPath subset now supports positional and attribute test
    predicates.  This allows selection of subtrees based on position
    (e.g. the second item element) or by presence of attributes or  
    with specific values.

    For example:

    <p:subtree select="xhtml:tr[2]">

    will delete the second row from an XHTML table.

2. The [p:]let step has been added to allow binding of parameters  
    to subtrees or values.  This allows saving parts of documents for  
    later in the pipeline.  When all the variables have been bound,  
processing continues.

    For example, it is common that the input document contains  
parameters to a
    request that might need to be accessed throught the pipeline.  This  
    binds two parameter 'order' and 'format' to attributes of the  
'request' element.

       <p:parameter name="order" select="/request/@order"/>
       <p:parameter name="format" select="/request/@output"/>

3. The Netbeans module has been overhauled to support Netbeans 4.1 as  
well as
    to fix several issues.
