The XML Processing Model Working Group has published the second Working Draft of the pipeline language document.

A few weeks ago, I asked the Working Group if they thought we could get another XProc Working Draft published sometime in December. They replied, why not next week? Is they great, or what?

I think it actually took two weeks, but today, we published the second Working Draft of XProc: An XML Pipeline Language.

There's still lots of work to be done, though I hear occasional, optimistic whispers that include “last call” and “January” in the same breath.

I think the big changes are:

Happy reviewing! (For more explanation and a little background, see my essay about our First Public Working Draft.)

Here I was almost finished implementing SXPipe in Python and when I go to your site to look up your email address to ask for a few clarifications I find you're approaching last call on an updated spec.

Congratulations! I'm now reading up to see if this will be as straightforward to implement as SXPipe was.
