Hi all,

Some of you probably know that in my spare time, I have been working on
a completely client-side, JavaScript version of our Calumet XProc
processor (see my Balisage paper on the subject if you are interested:

While I am still not done with the project (will I ever be?), I think it
might be interesting to give you access to an "alpha" demo:


There are still some issues with different browsers (for instance, the
p:validate-with-schematron example does not work with Safari/Chrome) and
some features don't work that reliably yet (namespaces, p:http-request,
...), but all in all, I think I have reached a stage where I can
consider releasing the JavaScript version to a wider public soon. I
still consider this experimental/fun technology, but perhaps the best
thing to do now is to let the users try it out, test it, and figure out
if they can do anything useful with it.

I am not making any promises as to when the release will be available,
but I would like to - if other priorities allow - wrap it up and make it
available before the end of the year.
