Conference slot proposal #1
Hi all. Here is my input for the regular XML Prague 2019 conference slot about XProc 3.0. This is what I currently plan to submit using the CFP, after getting your consent.
Title: Excellent XProc 3.0 (is this too playful? A straight "XProc 3.0 status update" sounds so boring... )
Since 2017, the W3C XProc Next Community Group has been busy specifying a new version of the XProc standard, version 3.0. In parallel, two XProc 3.0 processors are developed and a Programmer’s Reference written. Work still needs to be done on the step library. We hope to wrap things up before the end of 2019. The core committee consists of Normal Walsh, Achim Berndzen, Gerrit Imsieke and Erik Siegel.
XProc V1.0 served as the starting point for V3.0 but has been modernized, changed and made more consistent in many ways. However, XProc is not a very well-known standard, so we would like to present these changes linked to explaining some of the core features and principles of the language. So not just a list of changes (that will fall on barren ground if you don’t really know the language) but more an “XProc principles overview” and link this overview to the changes we made.
To show its not vaporware, we’ll demonstrate that the two V3.0 processors, Calabash and Morgana, although still under construction, are actually working and processing documents.
