Sourceforge Project Page

This project is managed in Sourceforge. See the Sourceforge Project Page.
The latest version under "xmlsh/latest" is release Release updated on 2010-01-14. It is currently in use in productions systems and there are no *known* open bugs.

Note: 2009-12-11 starting with xmlsh version the runtime jar has been renamed from xmlsh.jar to xmlsh-1.0.jar so that it doesnt conflict with the beta xmlsh.jar. The 1.0 release of xmlsh depends on Saxon 9.2 which is incompatible with the beta release which depends on Saxon 9.1.
