XSLT 2.0

I am currently using the javax.xml.transform library to transform an xml file into another file. I just saw that the Transformer class only seems to support XSLT 1.0. I am using Java 1.6. Is there any support for XSLT 2.0 in any java libraries or other open source libraries out there? If so can anyone recommend the best one to use?

I know that Saxon supports XSLT 2.0 in Java. By now there are probably other implementations but Saxon is by far the most mature and established implementation.
