Re: XSLT 2.0 has arrived
XSLT 2.0 has lot of other features apart from regular expressions. For e.g. for-each-group (a newcomer now doesn't need to learn a complicated Muenchian grouping algorithm. it's also very scalable), rich data typing (tightly integrated with XML Schema, which has many benifits), a very huge function library, and quite a few more benifits.
My point is that none of those really matter to me all that much.
Using Saxon just requires setting saxon8.jar in the classpath. Xalan-J requires setting xalan.jar. So complexity of using Saxon is same as Xalan.
Yes, and both are quite a bit more complex than using xsltproc. :-( Classpath is evil.
