Vincent Hennebert, Simon Pepping, Bertrand Delacrétaz and I sit together here at the Cocoon GetTogether discussing all sorts of things about FOP. Topics so far were: letting line and page breaking interact for more layout functionality, general discussions about the Knuth-based layout approach including Simon's generalized approach, the font system (ToUnicode CMAPs, OpenType support, FOrayFont...), page-number-citations, minimum JDK requirements, the next FOP release, etc. etc.
No decisions, of course, just exchanging information, finding out stuff... Yesterday, Lars Trieloff and I have implemented a new Cocoon Block for FOP 0.92beta and later. The patch has already been committed to the Cocoon 2.2.x repo. It was nice to see how the new API paid off, reducing the number of lines necessary for the integration and adding support for URI resolution which was a huge problem for Cocoon with FOP 0.20.5. Generally, this event is a great opportunity to get to know each other and to discuss in a different way. Big thanks to the Cocoon community for letting us take part in their event. The location and food is very good and we enjoy this very much. It would have been cool to have even more team members here.
