Beta Release of new XSLT library
15:11, 9 Feb 2001 UTC | Leigh Dodds

Dan Veillard has announced the initial beta release of libxslt, a C library based on libxml. While the library is still incomplete, Veillard has committed to fixing bugs in a timely fashion and expects a weekly release cycle for the next few months.

The library is expected to become part of the Gnome project, and is thus likely to become an integral part of many Linux distributions.

At present the library, which includes a test application, does not implement the full XSLT 1.0 specification. Notably it lacks support for:

  • Extensions support
  • Embedding Stylesheets
  • Some part of xsl:number
  • xsl:apply-imports
  • document() and key() are incomplete

Veillard notes that bugs should be reported to the xml@rpmfind.net mailing list, or the Gnome Bug tracking database.

Accompanying the new library, Veillard has also announced a bug fix release of libxml.
