Support of xpath-functions

Great too see a new version after many years!
This version is built upon the 4.0 framework, but doens't support '' namespace while transforming XML.

Error Transforming XML
Cannot find a script or an extension object associated with namespace ''.

In the regular .NET 4.0 framework it does support this, so how come?

I'm not aware of .NET 4.0 supporting those XPath 2.0 functions. Can you post a link to a sample stylesheet that uses these functions and the C# code that transforms it, then I will figure out how to include that in XML Notepad. Thanks.

I cannot provide links to te code I use, but here's a snippet, in particular the fn namespace and function:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<xsl:if test="fn:days-from-duration(fn:current-date() - xs:date(@dateChange)) = 0">

The C# code uses the Saxon compiler, which is why the transformation works. With the standard XSLT tranformation is doesn't.
Perhaps a good idea to use the Saxon compiler instead?

Ok, you are using Saxon, so that makes sense. XML Notepad is not setup to use that compiler, but I could work on a “plugin” feature that allows you to plug in different XSLT engines… I’ll added a work item to the list of open issues, see:
