frequent users?

Or are there people out there like me that just stick to ver. 1.0?

I have seen the specs for 2.0 and some of the new features, but have yet needed to use them yet.

I have not seen anything on XSL 2.0. Is it good?

I jumped straight into XSLT 2.0, loved it and having part lurked on the XSLT list [mulberrytech.com] for a while, recognise that it's much improved over XSLT 1.0. I'm not up to speed well enough to sell it but you can see the major changes in the W3C (draft) recommendation for XSLT 2.0 [w3.org]

The most significant change I guess are its use of groups. There also appear to be a fair number of work arounds cleared up from XSLT 1.0

It's still not clear to me when it's expected to become full recommendation.. I expect then more people will commit to it.

My information may be dated but I believe Saxon 8.0 is currently the only 2.0-compliant processor available.

There is some debate iver the relationship of XSLT 2.0 with XPath 2.0 and XQuery 1.0, which are waiting in the wings. It was also announced recently that .Net 2.0 will support only XQuery 1.0.

Given all that, we see no need to rush to convert from XSLT 1.0 to Anything 2.0.
