By the time you read this SAXON 4.5 should be available at 

The new version implements the 9 July 99 XSL spec, in both the compiler and
the interpreter. "Instant SAXON", the packaged version of the interpreter
for Windows, is also available. As well as moving to the new syntax, this
release plugs a few of the remaining gaps in SAXON's XSL coverage, for
example it now supports xsl:include and the document() function. (I still
haven't got around to namespaces, though).

I've cut out a lot of dead wood in the Java API, so if you're using SAXON as
a Java class library rather than for its XSL processing, you may be better
off sticking with the previous version.
