XPath 2.0 & XQuery 1.0

P: n/a
Hi .NET XML fans,

does anyone know ad hoc whether support for the above standards is planned
for .NET 2.0?
I suppose this would be extremely valuable for many folks...

Thanks,
Phil

As neither XPath 2.0 nor XQuery 1.0 will be a W3C recommendation while
..NET 2.0 is developed and shipped I think a decision has been made not
to have XQuery 1.0 support in the .NET 2.0 SDK.
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml/xquerystatus/default.aspx>
Some XQuery support is planned for SQL server 2005.

On the other hand there are people working on porting the Java Saxon
XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0/XQuery 1.0 processor to .NET 1.x so that way you
might get support for those languages with existing .NET code:
<http://www.x2x2x.org/x2x2x/home/>
But keep in mind that the specifications for XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0/XQuery
1.0 are still changing and so is Saxon and its .NET port.
