XSLT 3.0 becomes a Recommendation today (June 8, 2017)!

We kept you waiting for ten years, but it has finally happened.

A reminder of some of the key features:

  • Streaming
  • Separately compiled packages
  • Higher-order functions
  • JSON, maps, and arrays
and of course lots of goodies like trigonometric functions, dynamic XPath evaluation, a string concatenation operator, text value templates, a random number generator, and a function chaining operator.
