XML News from Wednesday, November 15, 2006

The W3C has released XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 (Second Edition). The most significant change is that, "An XInclude processor may, at user option, suppress xml:base and/or xml:lang fixup." Otherwise most of the changes had already been addressed in errata.

The W3C has also launched a registry for unprefixed XPointer schemes. There's some interesting stuff in here such as xpath1, xpath2, string-range, svgView, right, and left. Possibly I'll implement one or two of these in XOM. xpath1 would be useful and not too hard to do.
