nxslt v2.0 released

nxslt v2.0 (aka nxslt2) is available for download. This is first nxslt release for .NET 2.0. nxslt is a free feature-rich command line utility that allows to perform XSL Transformations (XSLT) using .NET Framework 2.0 XSLT implementation - System.Xml.Xsl.XslCompiledTransform class. nxslt is compatible with Microsoft's MSXSL.EXE tool and additionally supports ...

nxslt2 is a free open source tool, subject to the BSD license and is distributed on an "AS IS" basis, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, either express or implied. You can use it for any commercial or noncommercial purposes, including distributing derivative works.

I decided to name v2 version nxslt2, so in the release you will find nxslt2.exe file. That's because I still do lots of .NET 1.1 development and so I need nxslt.exe to remain .NET 1.1 tool. If you don't like nxslt2.exe name - well, just rename it.

Some smart people proposed to contribute patches to the nxslt codebase in order to add new features they need. That's just great. To enable this I moved nxslt sources to the Mvp.Xml Project CVS Repository. Now if you need the nxslt tool to have a new feature you can either just suggest it and wait me to implement it or instead you can checkout nxslt sources, add new feature and send a patch to me. Do whatever works for you and thanks in advance for contributions.
