Status update on SchXslt

David Maus, 13.02.2019 · Permalink

I just published release candidate 5 of SchXslt, my XSLT-based Schematron processor. My goal is to publish a final version 1.0 at the end of February.

Version 1.0 will suffer from the same defect as the skeleton implementation with regards to equally named global, phase, and pattern variables. SchXslt will terminate if a global variable has the same name as a phase variable, a phase variable has the same name as a pattern variable, or a global variable has the same name as a pattern variable.

Given the fact that the skeleton has the same defect for more than 10 years, it should pose no immediate problem for people switching to SchXslt.
