SAXON version 3.1 is now available at:

There are a lot of small enhancements, mostly requested by users, but nothing that radically changes the scope. The changes are described in a changes.html file within the download.

SAXON is a java class library that sits on top of a SAX Parser or DOM implementation, providing a variety of facilities that help the application to process an XML document. It is designed primarily to support applications handling specific document types (as opposed to general-purpose tools), especially applications doing XML-to-HTML or XML-to-XML transformations.

SAXON works in principle with any SAX 1.0 conformant parser (the latest version is tested with xp, xml4j, SUN XML Library, aelfred) or with any implementation of the latest DOM specification (tested with docuverse and xml4j; should work with SUN again when they upgrade to the latest spec).

The download includes source and object code, documentation, and sample applications. One of the sample applications is a DTD Generator which has proved popular in its own right.
