Hi Dario Looks like there's something going on FOP-wise in Bologna. Good to see that!
The Wiki pages you mention are still valid. They contain important knowledge we learned while getting to know our layout approach. But the pages might not reflect 100% what Simon Pepping started and Vincent Hennebert is currently working on. Please take a look at: http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/PageLayout/PageAndLineBreaking/UnifiedApproach This contains the most up-to-date information. Vincent is currently off-line for a few days. He's the person you should coordinate with (through this mailing list) if you want to help him. In the meantime, please also read up on the mailing list archives (the last few weeks). Some threads contain information about what Vincent is doing right now, for example: http://markmail.org/message/hynem7vlowt42ir7 http://markmail.org/message/vz2q77b345zwhx7d http://markmail.org/message/x2uwter5ze4w3qaz On 21.06.2008 16:32:36 Dario Laera wrote: > Hi all, > > I'm trying to understand how FOP works and what are its possible > future directions.
