Thanks to everyone for joining in on this discussion, which went slightly beyond my original intentions (a good thing), but learnt a few new things along the way. Was a bit surprised that throughout this thread, the market seems divided between LAMP and Java only. What happened to ASP, C#.NET or even desktop/tools? And what about browser's client-side XSLT 2.0?

If I try to compile a little final list of all information so far, it'll look something like the following. If you have information about the gaps in my information gathering, I'm (still/always) all ears.

Complete implementations

------------------------ - Saxon-HE, open source, basic [1][3] - Saxon-PE, commercial closed source, basic [2][3] - Saxon-EE, commercial closed source, schema-aware [2][3] - AltovaXML, free closed source, schema-aware[4] - IBM WebSphere Feature Pack, free* closed source, schema aware[5]

* the feature pack is free, WebSphere, to which it belongs, is not

Incomplete implementations

-------------------------- - Intel XSLT 2.0, public beta free dl, basic*, 90% conformance [6] - Gestalt, open source, no more development, unknown conformance [7] - Oracle 10.1+, unclear status, no dl, unknown conformance [8]

* Intel wants feedback, in particular about whether to implement SA.

Alternatives

------------ - EXSLT, extensions to XSLT 1.0 to close the gap, no conformance [9] - XSLT 2.0 through XSLT 1.0 (can't find the link anymore)

No plans

-------- - Microsoft has postponed plans for XSLT 2.0 indefinitely [10]

Wishes

------ - Native XSLT 2.0 for .NET. The XPath 2.0 datamodel is already there - Native C/C++ XSLT 2.0 processor for LAMP and others - Open source C-interface for implementation in open source browsers

for C/C++ world maybe better option is to compile XSLT 2.0 stylesheet into C/C++ code (if you need very fast conversion)

but even with this case i suggest that pros and cons not vote for this case too

JDK7 with G1 for Saxon (maybe EE) probably much better idea to get lightspeed XSLT 2.0 conversion (don`t forget about second front in face of AMD & Intel "brains")

If I had time I would. Would be better if one or a subset of the Saxon development community did it.

Dr. Kay's left leg, for example.
