jd.xsltc is a new XSLT WD 1.1 stylesheet compiler. A free community edition for non-commercial purposes is available at http://www.aztecrider.com/xsltc/index.html
Classic XSLT processors like jd.xslt , XT or Saxon interpret a stylesheet whereas stylesheet compilers like jd.xsltc or Apaches XSLTC create a Java class from a stylesheet which is then used to transform XML documents according the rules of the original stylesheet.
The compiler approach aims at faster transformation time and less memory consumption. On the XSLTMark benchmark  jd.xsltc shows a performance increase of roughly 50% compared to jd.xslt which is itself by factors faster than many of the mainstream processors.
(The community edition contains benchmark drivers for Datapowers XSLTMark  and Sarvegas XSLT benchmark , if you are interested to run these benchmark tests for yourself).
