Hi, from , I understand that the BATIK patch is not yet applied on BATIK trunk, so introducing a such dependency is not a good idea for the moment.
I will vote +1 when the patch will be applied. For now, we depend on Batik team  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BATIK-1041?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel 2013/8/21 Vincent Hennebert <vhenneb...@gmail.com> > This work allows to directly use FOP-configured fonts for SVG images, > instead of trying to find, via AWT, equivalent fonts installed on the > system, and then mapping them to FOP fonts when generating the output. > > Please note that this introduces a dependency on the trunk version of > Batik, with the patch from BATIK-1041 applied.
