I believe SAXON's support for XSLT/XPath 3.0 is limited to just the SAXON EE
edition, which is not free. Please correct me if I am in error.

Furthermore, in a recent message Michael Kay wrote [1]:

So it is quite possible (likely) that SAXON will have no free version of
XSLT/XPath 3.0.

Alas, there will be no free , fully-compliant XSLT/XPath 3.0 processors. The
people I work with will simply ignore XSLT/XPath 3.0 and instead use (free)
Java.
