Are there any near future plans to release a new version of Saxon implementing the new features so that there is an implementation around to explore them?

Saxon (PE and EE) 9.4 already implement quite a few of the features:

- streaming (in part)
- try/catch
- maps
- xsl:mode
- xsl:evaluate
- xsl:iterate
- xsl:merge

plus the whole of XPath 3.0 except perhaps one or two functions.

Other features that have already been implemented for the Saxon 9.5 release include:

- accumulators
- composite keys in xsl:for-each-group
- changes to xsl:merge since the previous WG draft
- xsl:assert
- xsl:number/@start-at
- xsl:message/@error-code
- EQNames

and no doubt more by the time we release (probably a few months away).

Implementing packages is a big item and will probably have to wait for a later release.
