[ANN] libxslt-0.1.0 first beta is released
Okay adding one more unfinished XSLT processor to the list may sound like a bad idea. Point is that I will try to fix all reported bugs in a timely fashion. This is also very likely to be included in most Linux distributions within 6 months as part of the Gnome enviroment. It should also compile and work without troubles in most C enviroment, (with the notable exception of AS/400 where the compiler represent char/strings in EBCDIC and not ASCII) ... Licencing is LGPL or W3C IPR like, i.e. reusable without problem even in commercial products. Libxslt is a C library, based on libxml-2.3.0, both are available from: Those are available at: http://xmlsoft.org/ ftp://xmlsoft.org/ and in the stable tree of gnome.org for libxml2 ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/sources/libxml/ and unstable tree for libxslt ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/unstable/sources/libxslt/ Libxslt-0.1.0 is the first beta release, it should cover most features from the XSLT-1.0 spec but it's clearly not complete yet. Check the FEATURES file to get a precise idea. I have put an initial web page at http://xmlsoft.org/XSLT The embedded xmlproc test program allow to run non-trivial transformations anyway. Usage is xsltproc [-v] [--debug] file.xsl file.xml The main parts missing are: - Extensions support - Embedding Stylesheets - Some part of xsl:number - xsl:apply-imports - document() and key() are incomplete A quick grep on FEATURES indicates 146 YES and 19 NO. Bjorn Reese provided numbers and formatting functions. We are getting closer from feature completion at a quick rate. Libxslt may work for most use right now, but it is clear that its not well tested and it's aboslutely certain that some obvious bugs will be found as there is more testing and real use. Please use the xml@xxxxxxxxxxx list to report bugs or the Gnome Bug tracking database specifying the libxslt module: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ It is probable that libxml and libxslt will have different releases schedule in the future. I expect to ship a new libxslt version approximately every weeks in the next month, Daniel -- Daniel Veillard | Red Hat Network http://redhat.com/products/network/ veillard@xxxxxxxxxx | libxml Gnome XML toolkit http://xmlsoft.org/ http://veillard.com/ | Rpmfind RPM search engine http://rpmfind.net/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
