>It looks like with the work that is going on for the support of XML Schema 1.1, that Xerces might also be getting XPath 2.0 support. Personally, I think it is a good thing, since the XPath 2.0 parser and XSLT 2.0 version of Xalan seems to be stuck in limbo. I had high hopes of trying to revive the Xalan XSLT 2.0 processor, but just do not have enough cycles, and it is currently low on my priority list. However, I’m glad to see a possible Apache Licensed XPath 2.0 implementation in the works.
One of the items we have outstanding in XSL Tools is to provide XPath 2.0 validation. So having an Apache Licensed implementation will go a long way to helping to implement this.
