Von: "Henrik Genssen" so this effort has died and was not taken over? http://www.explain.com.au/libx/
Yes, to the best of my knowledge, meaning that I haven't seen activity there for years (2011?).
Same here. I think the main problem is that XSLT2 has a rather different processing model than XSLT1 due to its schema awareness. Some V2 features can be implemented on top of XSLT1 without that, but most of it requires an XML Schema based data model. Without having looked into it too deeply, I would guess that this should need quite a bunch of changes in libxslt.
The project above was meant to finance itself by making the code commercially available first, which clearly didn't pay off. Either because no-one really cares about XSLT2, or because those who do care rather use Java+Saxon. Saxon was written by the same person as the spec, so at least one person was interested in it at the time. Not sure if there are so many others who need it.
