Saxon/C is a cross-compiled variant of Saxon from the Java platform to the C/C++ platform. We have ported all the features of Saxon other than those like collations that are necessarily platform dependent. In particular it provides processing in XSLT, XQuery and XPath and Schema validation. It therefore gives capabilities to other languages that are strongly coupled to C/C++ such as PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, node.js.

We offer the the commercial products in addition to the Saxon-HE under Saxon/C: Namely Saxon-HE/C, Saxon-PE/C and Saxon-EE/C.

The Windows release will follow later.

The Major release Saxon/C 1.2.0 is out

Released on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

http://www.saxonica.com/saxon-c/index.xml

This release is a significant one in that we have now added a Python extension API (created using Cython) to the suite of languages already supported in Saxon/C (C/C++/PHP). This is our first cut at providing the XML languages support to the Python community and therefore we appreciate any feedback received.

The core XSLT, XQuery, XPath and Schema processor is base-lined to the Java Saxon 9.9.1.5 version.

In addition, we have added a new feature rich XSLT30 processor API to the languages: C++, PHP and Python

Updated to Excelsior JET Enterprise 15.3 (MP1) - the cross compiler tool of Saxon.

See full release notes: http://www.saxonica.com/saxon-c/release-notes.xml Also see: https://saxonica.plan.io/projects/saxon-c/issues filter by Fixed in version= ‘1.2.0' and status = ‘Closed'.

Note: users may be aware that the Excelsior JET technology used to build this product will not be supported into the future. However, for the time being the tools remain in our experience effective and reliable, and we have a perpetual license to continue using them. With this release of Saxon/C out of the way, we have plans to evaluate alternative technologies to move Saxon/C forward in future releases.

Saxon: Price changes

Price changes on the online shop
Added by Michael Kay about 4 years ago

List prices for Saxonica's products have been increased today (24 June 2016), in most cases by 20%. This is the first price change since November 2008. During that period the UK retail price index has increased by 22%.

The immediate trigger for the change is of course the volatility in the currency markets caused by the UK's decision to leave the European Union. Saxonica is based in the UK and sets its prices in GBP, but over 90% of our business comes from outside the UK, and many of our contracts with long-term customers are priced in USD or EUR. We don't want to be in the position where these customers are locked into a price that is higher than the price paid by new clients, and an increase in our list prices also reduces our exposure to the uncertainties of rapidly fluctuating currency rates.

Existing contracts, quotations, and invoices will of course be honoured whatever currency they are written in.

We do not expect the UK's decision to leave the EU to have any adverse effect on our business, other than the short-term problems caused by uncertainty and speculation. We have always traded globally, and we have never found that doing business with EU countries is significantly easier (or harder) than with any other country in the world. We benefit greatly from a world in which there are no trade barriers, but our business is global rather than regional.
