Joost summer release available

Joost is an open source XML transformation engine that implements the language "Streaming Transformations for XML" (STX). It is released under the Mozilla Public License Version 1.1

The current release extends the regular expression support in Joost. It provides full XPath 2.0 regex support (thanks to Michael Kay's Saxon) as well as three new string functions.

Last but not least the recently reported serious memory problem has been fixed. It appeared if templates or procedures use local variables as their direct children.
