XML News from Friday, December 2, 2005

Opera Software has posted preview releases of version 9.0 of their namesake free-beer web browser for Windows, Unix, and the Mac. Most notably this release (finally!) adds support for XSLT. At least they say it does. In my tests, it couldn't render this XML page styled with XSLT. Other XMLish improvements include more accurate CSS rendering, Web Forms 2.0, Apple's canvas element, Atom 1.0, xml:id, removes support for XML namespaces in HTML documents, and can re-parse invalid XML documents as HTML after XML parsing has failed.
