This is the second public beta release of Saxon-CE, details are given below.
XML/HTML Output Options: The new capability for the creation of XML documents or fragments allows better integration with other code and systems, it's also now possible to update existing HTML pages other than the host page.
Tracing and Diagnostics: Improved XSLT diagnostics are now provided in the form of a
trace capability that provides an XML structured view of the dynamic execution of XSLT
instructions within your stylesheet. This trace information can also be supplemented using the
fn:trace() XPath function. Additional timing information can also be exploited
using browser development tools that provide a time-line.
