We originally wanted to do a release much earlier but I was always in the middle of something and I think I'm simply the only one who can allocate enough time to do an actual release (prove me wrong, please). I think I can make time next week to do a release of FOP and XML Graphics Commons. FOP Trunk is currently in pretty good condition, the new API is established and documented. I imagine a 0.92beta (beta only because of the changed API and the many deprecations, PDF and PS output are production-ready IMO), and after waiting for some time for feedback on the API, we could release a 1.0. So if there's nothing that would block a release, I can create a release branch and start a PMC vote for the release.
WDYT? Jeremias Maerki
