I am happy to announce the availability of version 1.0.8 of EMC XProc
Engine, EMC's XProc processor implementation. The processor is free for
developer use and can be downloaded - together with other XML tools -
from the EMC XML Developer Community website:

https://community.emc.com/community/edn/xmltech

This is the first public release of the processor. Note that while
version 1.0.8 supports most of the required features of XProc, the
implementation is not yet complete. We are looking forward to your
feedback - please use the EDN XML Developer Community forum (or this
mailing list) for any comments, suggestions, feature requests, or bug
reports.


The features of version 1.0.8 include:

* Support for most of the XProc specification
XProc Engine implements most of the required features of the XProc
specification. For an overview of the supported features, and the
progress of the implementation, see the XProc Test Suite web page:
http://tests.xproc.org/results/calumet/.

* Open architecture
Plug-ins can extend the processor and customize the default behavior or
provide new functionality, such as extension XProc steps. The XProc
Engine distribution comes with a number of plug-ins that can be used
with the processor. Software developers can use the XProc Engine API to
create custom plug-ins.

* Easy to embed
Its Java application programming interface makes it easy to embed the
XProc Engine in other Java applications.

* Command-line interface
XProc Engine provides an interface for running XProc pipelines from the
command-line.

* Integration with EMC Documentum xDB
XProc Engine can be integrated with the EMC Documentum xDB XML database
(via a plug-in). The plug-in provides a number of xDB-specific XProc
steps, and allows developers to combine the benefits of a
state-of-the-art native XML database and XProc.
