Saxon 7.2 is available at http://saxon.sf.net/
A full list of changes is at http://saxon.sf.net/saxon7.2/changes.html
Probably the most interesting new feature is support for regular
expressions, specifically the xsl:analyze-string instruction and the
matches(), replace(), and tokenize() functions defined in the 16 August
2002 working drafts from W3C.
Saxon uses the regular expression libraries in JDK 1.4, so you must
install this version of the JDK. Also, because JDK 1.4 includes an XML
parser as standard, Saxon no longer bundles the AElfred parser.
Production systems should stick with Saxon 6.5.2 until the XSLT 2.0 and
XPath 2.0 specs become more stable.
