It is my pleasure to inform users that we have uploaded a new maintenance release of Saxon 9.5: Version

It has been uploaded to the usual locations on the SourceForge and Saxonica servers.
There have been quite a number of bugs fixed but most of them will affect rather few users.

For a list of bugs, go to and filter on 'Fixed in version' = and Status = Closed. Alternatively, view the readme file for summary of bug fixed:

Furthermore, we have been looking at better ways to inform our users of Saxon product updates. We have added a news section to our community site which will feature notifications of new Saxon products, in addition to major and minor releases. To receive such notifications please go to the following page and click on 'Watch' (user registration is required):

Kind regards,
