We're pleased to announce an alpha release of Saxon/C - Saxon-HE for the C/C++
and PHP platforms.

Details here:


The product is cross-compiled from Saxon 9.5 using the JET Excelsior compiler.
The alpha release provides C/C++ and PHP APIs for XSLT only; we expect to
expand the range to all Saxon editions and capabilities in due course. Like
Saxon on .NET, the product is single-sourced from the Java master code, so we
expect it to remain in sync with new releases on the Java platform.

We're hoping this product will fill a major gap that has existed for far too
long, making XSLT 2.0 available to the large developer community using PHP and
associated tools.
