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'.

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

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.
