[sent here to make a public record]

There are two implementations that pass the XSD 1.1 tests:

1. Saxon passes all of the relevant tests for XSD 1.1;
2. Xerces passes all of the relevant tests for XSD 1.1.

Details for Saxon: [1]

In addition, Saxon also passes all 41,590 of the tests for XSD 1.1 and
XSD 1.*, except:

1a. Six tests that use significant resources; they are not testing
    anything new to 1.1 (you can get combinatorial explosions with some
    algorithms, but the widespread use of Saxon suggests they are rare
    "corner cases")

1b. One hundred and three tests that are for XSD (i.e. not specific to
XSD 1.1) and that were not run because the tests have issues against

Details for Xerces [2]

Xerces passes all except 3 of the XSD 1.1 tests; it fails 3 that test
for XML 5th edition support, not yet supported by xerces but also not
required by XSD 1.1. This is not a 1.1-specific feature.
