Hey Chris

Hi Martin,

I had found PDF image in postscript (presumably whatever conversion is going 
on) so poor that I presumed it was not meant to work. I have pretty much coded 
around it converting the PDFs to images myself.

Most of the processing of the PDF Images in PS output is handled by PDFBox. You should find that upgrading your PDFBox version sufficient to improve the quality of the Postscript output. PDFBox is a very active project and they've completed several releases since 2010.



Arguably it has been a while since a test - I will see if I can find my old 
tests and dust them off.

The font thing will be handy - although I have been getting good at managing 
TTF and type 1 fonts finally ;-)

Thanks for getting back to me

Hi Martin

Does it work a little better with postscript now?
I'm sorry but I don't recall exactly what issues you were having with 
Postscript output with FOP? Can you be more specific. There have been several 
bug fixes to FOP generated PS since the v1.0 release. The biggest change is the 
introduction of support for embedding TTF Fonts in the Postscript.

Hi Glenn,

I'd like to survey folks to see what, if any bugs or issues you believe are *essential* 
to be addressed in fop1.1rc1 prior to releasing fop1.1. There has been a suggestion to 
update fop-pdf-images prior to an fop1.1 release. Is there someone who would volunteer to 
do that [real soon now]? Or is it better to wait until after fop1.1 is released? Any 
other "must fix" bugs in 1.1rc1?
Thanks for starting this discussion. I have been meaning to send a similar 
e-mail for the last couple of days. In my view the PDF Image Loading issue 
(53468) is high priority. A lot of users will want to use this plug-in with 
FOP. We are big users of the plug-in too, but don't use the released FOP 

I can assign Rob to work on it since he is available, but he is not a committer so won't 
be able to process the Patch already submitted to 53468. Vincent can work on it in about 
2 weeks time, so I guess who does it depends on your definition of "real soon 

I guess your call for volunteers means you don't have any free time to invest 
in that yourself?

I'm not aware of any other high priority bugs. User feedback on 1.1rc1 appears 
to be a little muted compared to previous releases. Hopefully that is a sign of 
improved code quality.
