Dear list,
after several months of work I want to announce the first release of the
Unified Typesetting API.

The Unified Typesetting API (UTA) is an attempt to unify the typesetting
process needed by every text handling application. Currently it provides
a reference implementation in Java available under the Mozilla Public

 * line-breaking model similar to TeX's to allow global optimizing
   line-break algorithms (stable)
 * modular and extensible design to allow simple as well as high quality
 * support for new scripts can easily be added (in progress)
 * quality management component to retrieve information about the 
   internals of a typesetter (stable)
 * fully documented
 * open source

Source and documentation is available under
