At a time when the W3C just announced XSL 2.0 as a official recommendation. Kurt Cagle has the scoop.
Microsoft has formally announced that with the publication of the XSLT 2.0 Recommendation the XML Team has commenced working on a new XSLT 2.0 implementation that will be available as part of the .NET platform, with the very real possibility that it will also be folded into the Internet Explorer browser.
Oh and did you see the new features which are being put into Firefox 3.0? Not only offline application support but EXSLT support too.
