A new version of Sablotron, the XSLT transformation engine, covers the remaining missing features of XSLT 1.0 and brings important improvements such as DOM Level 2 and multiple output documents.

Ginger Alliance have announce an updated version of Sablotron. With very minor exceptions it fully implements XSLT 1.0, XPath 1.0 and DOM Level2. In addition, some EXSLT extensions (JavaScript functions, multiple output documents) are also implemented.

The main changes in this version (0.95):

  • DOM support upgraded to DOM Level2
  • xsl:strip-space and xsl:preserve-space implemented
  • XSLT on external documents (accessed via callbacks)
  • esxlt:document instruction implemented
  • unparsed-entity-uri() function implemented
  • added a manual page for sabcmd (command line tool for Sablotron)
  • added a batch mode (multiple sources/stylesheets) for sabcmd
  • added a system property to display version
  • added a flag for document() to return an empty node-set when it refers to non-existing document

The Sablotron manual is now out-of-date and will soon be redesigned completely. SXP reference guide also needs some updates. The Perl modules docs should be up to date (including XML::Sablotron::DOM).
