Thank you Michael,

Based on the results from the provided link, there are these five
different implementations of XPath 3.0 (three of them are
implementations of XQuery 3.0), which have reported test results:

     BaseX 7.7

     EMC/xDB xDB_main_r2411365

     Saxon-EE 9.5.1.1

     XmlPrime 3.0.0.0

     Zorba 2.9


Also, thanks to the reply by Adam Retter:

     eXist supports XQuery 3.0 natively, and by virtue of embedding
Saxon also XSLT 3.0.


There was also a hint that other implementations might exist (Altova
mentioned explicitly) that haven't reported their test results.

In addition here is a compacted copy of the xml-dev reply by John
Cowan, which adds data about Mark Logic and throws more light on the
level of support provided by some implementations to XSLT and XQuery
3.0, and also whether or not they are open source -- the data on Saxon
has been obsoleted by Michael Kay's reply that the forthcoming "major
Saxon release (9.6) will include full support for the basic
conformance level of both specs in the open source HE product. (Note
that the basic conformance level excludes higher order functions.)".


       Saxon 9 (XSLT 3.0 and XQuery 3.0)
       Proprietary version provides XSLT 3.0 and XQuery 3.0; the
open-source version provides XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0.

       Mark Logic (XQuery 3.0, ??XSLT 3.0??)
       Proprietary only; partial XQuery 3.0, XSLT unknown version.

       BaseX  (XQuery 3.0, ??XSLT 3.0??)
       Open source; XQuery 3.0; XSLT available outboard only

       Zorba ???
       Open source; XQuery 3.0; no XSLT.

       ExistDb ???
      Open source; partial XQuery 3.0;.XSLT available outboard only.
    These are just the result of quick surveys, and may be out of date.


Thanks to all who have responded -- now we have a better picture.

Cheers,
Dimitre
