Re: xslt 2 for production use
is xslt 2 ready for production use? does anybody know a page which does some comparision between that and the previous version?
Ready for production use? No, not yet. But not too far away.
Some highlights of XSLT 2.0:
Support for grouping using <xsl:for-each-group> A whole raft of new XPath 2.0 functions, including date manipulation functions Use of W3C XML Schema datatypes instead of the XPath 1.0 datatypes New XPath expressions, such as for expressions and if expressions Support for multiple output documents New XHTML output method A facility to create stylesheet functions Regular expressions support
And lots more. :)
If you want to play with XSLT 2.0 then Michael Kay's Saxon, version 7.5, is the most complete prototype tool that I am aware of. Currently it doesn't support too much of the validation and type-related functionality.
Dave Pawson has begun to put up some XSLT 2.0 material on the XSLT FAQ.
