Saxonica is pleased to announce the release of Saxon-JS 2.2 for both
Node.js and the browser.

Saxon-JS is a high-performance XSLT 3.0 processor. It conforms with
the latest W3C specifications (notably XSLT 3.0 and XPath 3.1),
together with extensions designed to meet the needs of modern web

The Saxon-JS 2.2 release is a maintenance release containing bug fixes.

The most significant change in this release is that Saxon-JS running
on Node.js no longer creates a bSaxonJSb global object. This has two

1. Saxon-JS works better in environments where the global object space
   is managed more strictly. In particular, it will work with Electron
   and tools like Webpack.

2. If your Node.js application relies on the implicit creation of the
   SaxonJS global object, you will need to make a few minor changes to
   your application.

On the browser, where the import mechanism is simply to load a script,
Saxon-JS continues to create a global bSaxonJSb object as before.

Other notable bug fixes in this release:

* The xpath-default-namespace is now honored in ixsl:* instructions.
* The -xp option on xslt3.js now supports -json to load a JSON document.
* The xslt3.js command line processor handles filenames with spaces.
* The Saxon.XPath.evaluate() function no longer fails when a function
  refers to the static context (for example, functions that
  reference the default collation).

For a more detailed summary of bug fixes, see the release notes:
