The Apache FOP team is proud to announce the release of Apache FOP version 0.93.
The new codebase for FOP was started several years ago in order to achieve better compliance with the XSL-FO spec. After three alpha and beta releases, the new codebase has now reached production quality. Therefore we present version 0.93 as the successor of version 0.20.5, FOP's production grade version during the past years. * FOP 0.93 contains the new API first introduced in release 0.92 beta. The preceding API has been removed. * FOP 0.93 again contains many bug fixes and new features. See below for details. Compliance ---------- FOP 0.93 implements the XSL 1.0 and 1.1 recommendations to a high degree of compliance. See the compliance page http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/compliance.html for a detailed overview. Known issues ------------ The known issues of FOP 0.93 are listed at http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/knownissues.html. Upgrading --------- You will experience different behaviour compared to version 0.20.5. Please consult the "Upgrading" page (http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/stable/upgrading.html) for details. Major Changes in Version 0.93 ----------------------------- * Added support for the use of Open Type fonts. * Support for the rgb-icc() function and for a proprietary cmyk() function (for device CMYK colors only through the PDF renderer so far). * Enabled Copy/Paste from PDF content in Acrobat Reader for text using embedded TrueType fonts. * Added support for PDF/A-1b and PDF/X-3:2003. (Note: this may still be a bit incomplete.) * The Java2DRenderer (and therefore the print and bitmap renderers) is now offering the same quality as the PDF and PS renderers. * Automatic support for all fonts available to the Java2D subsystem for all Java2D-descendant renderers (TIFF, PNG, print, AWT). The long list of changes in this release is available at http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.93/changes_0.93.html. The long list of changes in this and earlier releases is available at http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/changes.html. The Apache FOP team asks you for your continued feedback on the software. We're also interested in success stories with the new release. So if the latest version works fine for you, please tell us! And if it doesn't, you may tell us as well, of course. ;-) Release notes for older FOP versions can be found on: http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/relnotes.html For the FOP team, Simon Pepping [EMAIL PROTECTED]
