Test results were submitted for the following processors:
Exselt is a new XSLT 3.0 processor developed by Abrasoft. The company is owned by Abel Braaksma, who is a member of the XSL Working Group. Tests were run against a development snapshot of the product.
Saxon 9.8 is the forthcoming version of the commercial Saxon-EE/J product for the Java platform, produced by Saxonica. The company is owned by Michael Kay who is a member of the Working Group and editor of the specification. Tests were run on against a development snapshot of the product.
Parrot is a pseudonym for a product produced by a company that is not a member of the Working Group. The product implements the 2015 Candidate Recommendation rather than the 2017 version. The test results were obtained by a member of the working group and are incomplete.

The transition criteria published in the Candidate Recommendation are:
To demonstrate achievement of the criteria for transition to Proposed Recommendation the Working Group plans to provide evidence of two independent and substantially complete implementations of the basic XSLT processor conformance level as well as the optional streaming feature, and at least one substantially complete implementation of other optional features defined in 27 Conformance.
...two independent and substantially complete implementations of the basic XSLT processor conformance level
There are 6626 tests that should be passed by a processor claiming basic conformance.
Of these, 6459 (97.48%) were passed by at least two processors.
...two independent and substantially complete implementations of the optional streaming feature
There are 2361 tests that should be passed by a processor implementing the optional streaming feature.
Of these, 2198 (93.10%) were passed by at least two processors.
The optional features defined in the specification (apart from Streaming) are:
As demonstrated by the figures above, the target to demonstrate
... at least one substantially complete implementation of other optional features defined in 27 Conformance.
has been comfortably achieved.
