Haskell XML Toolbox 8.5.0

I would like to announce a new version of the Haskell XML Toolbox.

The main change in this release is the separation of the XPath module and the 
XSLT module into separate packages hxt-xpath and hxt-xslt. So the
base package becomes a bit smaller. Installation shouldn't become
more complex because of the easy install with cabal and hackage.

A second major change concerns the XPath module. The internal data structures,
especially the XPath node-sets, have been refactored for runtime efficiency.
So even complex XPath expressions with ambiguous paths to single nodes
run in acceptable time.

The source repositories have been converted to the git version control system. 
There is a single git repository for all HXT packages at

More information and also downloads can be found at 

There's also a copy of all packages on Hackage.

Please email comments, bugs, etc. to hxmltoolbox at fh-wedel.de or si at fh-wedel.de
