Saxon Release 9.5.1.1 - released 19 June 2013

Saxon 9.5.1.1 is more than just a bug fixing release; it also provides some small functionality changes. These are mainly in the interests of achieving 100% conformance with the XQuery 3.0 and XPath 3.0 specifications, which are currently at Candidate Recommendation status. In line with last-minute changes to the specifications, some functions in the function library have been renamed, and the syntax for declaring required and prohibited features has been dropped. The EXPath ZIP module is also withdrawn from the standard build because of concerns about its maturity; it can still be used by downloading the source code.

Saxon Release 9.5.1.2 - released 29 August 2013

Saxon 9.5.1.2 is primarily a bug fix release. There has been quite a number of bugs fixed but most of them will affect rather few users. It has been uploaded to the usual locations on the SourceForge and Saxonica servers. For a list of bugs, go to https://saxonica.plan.io/projects/saxon and filter on 'Fixed in version' = 9.5.1.2 and Status = Closed. Alternatively, view the readme file for summary of bug fixed:

Can you please provide instructions for using the expath functions described in the doc?

http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!extensions/functions/expath

It is unclear what needs to be done so that saxon9.5 EE can recognize these extensions.

- Nicolas.

Added by John Lumley over 2 years ago

The functions described in the documentation are already present in Saxon9.5.xxx PE/EE editions. The specific details are described in the appropriate sections of the Function Library: [[http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!functions/expath-file]] for File and [[http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/index.html#!functions/expath-zip]] for Zip. To use a function (assuming you have 9.5 PE/EE) you need only invoke it in an XPath expression using the appropriate namespace for the function name. For example:

    <file-list xmlns:file="http://expath.org/ns/file">
        <xsl:value-of select="file:list($dir)"/>
    ......

Please note that these EXPath standards are in some degree of revision at present - File is proposing a number of changes and Zip may well be superceded by another module: Archive. For more details please see [[http://expath.org/]]. Saxonica intends to support the revised (and hopefully Version 1.0) EXPath standards for File, Archive and also Binary in the upcoming 9.6 PE/EE editions.

Saxon Release 9.5.1.5 - released 25 March 2014

Another bug fixing release.

There have been quite a number of bugs fixed but most of them will
affect rather few users.

Whilst Saxon 9.5.1.5 is a maintenance release, in the Saxon-HE edition we have moved support for XQJ from the main JAR file, because of concerns about whether the license was truly open source,
but for the code to remain available as a separate JAR file, i.e. 'saxon-xqj.jar'.

For a list of bugs, go to https://saxonica.plan.io/projects/saxon and filter on 'Fixed in version' = 9.5.1.5 and Status = Closed. Alternatively, view the readme file for summary of bugs fixed:

We are please to announce Saxon 9.7 for Java is released, the first major release in over a year.
Release Date: 27 November 2015

Whats new:

  • XSLT 3.0 implementation largely complete (requires Saxon-PE or Saxon-EE).
  • Schema validation: improved error reporting. The schema validator now offers customised error reporting, with an option to create an XML report detailing all validation errors found.
  • Arrays, Maps, and JSON: Arrays are implemented as a new data type (defined in XPath 3.1).
  • Miscellaneous new functions: two of the most interesting are random-number-generator(), and parse-ietf-date().
  • Streaming: further improvements to the set of constructs that can be streamed, and the diagnostics when constructs cannot be streamed.
  • Concurrency improvements
  • Cost-based optimization: Saxon's optimizer now makes cost estimates in order to decide the best execution strategy.

The version for .NET will follow shortly.
