Developers can make use of the library rather than writing their own code from scratch to handle the same tasks.

Changes in this release, which is available at the XSLT Standard Library project site at SourceForge, include the addition of several new templates in the string-manipulation module, and an automated system for building the documentation for the distribution.

The project team includes several other developers in addition to Ball, and he encourages other interested developers to contribute:

Contributions must be submitted under the GNU LGPL license and must adhere to the project's engineering standards, which among other things require the contributed templates to be accompanied by documentation in the form of a DocBook Refentry.
