As per my recent post to both the Saxon.NET weblog as well as XSLTBlog:

Saxon.NET 1.0 RC1 is now available for download at:

<a href="http://www.saxondotnet.org/saxon.net/downloads/Saxon.NET-1.0-RC1.zip";>http://www.saxondotnet.org/saxon.net/downloads/Saxon.NET-1.0-RC1.zip</a>

There are still a few things I need to add to this, most importantly a
URI caching such that namespace URI's will be able to access the base
URI of there containing document.  This doesn't cause any serious
problems as far as usage and performance is concerned but is a
necessary piece to ensure complete compliance to the W3C spec and to
stay in sync with the latest Saxon release.  This will be made
available in RC2 after I am confident the community has had time to
add the beneifit of their own tests to the mix and as such reported
any showstoppers that would warrant extended bug bashing/development

This release is based on the latest 8.3(Basic) Saxon bits including
all released code patches Dr. Micheal Kay has made available via the
Saxon-Help mailing list.  This build has been run through a battery of
conformance tests and beyond warnings thrown (commandline only) when
extended namespaces are used has passed with flying colors.  This
includes the testing that Dimitre Novatchev has been doing with his
latest FXSL library for XSLT 2.0.

Thanks to everyone who has helped make this Release Candidate
possible, specifically Dr. Micheal Kay for obvious reasons, Jeroen
Frijters for his development of the IKVM.NET project, and Dimitre
Novatchev for adding Saxon.NET as part of his ongoing test routines of
the FXSL library which has proven beyond any reasonable doubt that
Saxon.NET is ready to take on the XSLT 2.0, XPath 2.0, and XQuery 1.0
needs of the .NET development community.

Cheers to you all :)

[UPDATE: I am currently developing examples on how to implement
extension functions via C# as well as the full extended documentation
such that anything that is different than the usage contained in Saxon
can be easily referenced both online and via a downloadble PDF).  As
soon as these become available I will post a link.]
