Hi all,

I have just stumbles upon the FOP main xdocs index pages :-

0.20.5  http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.20.5/index.html
0.93    http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.93/index.html

I believe that these 'About' descriptions no longer reflect the current state of the project and suggest that we should be directing our users to use 0.93 and not 0.20.5 anymore.

I have attached a patch file to update the descriptions to something which maybe better communicates to potential new FOP users which version of FOP we recommend they adopt in their environments. Please feel free of course to amend these descriptions, I have provided them just for illustration.
