the Release Candidate for 0.20.4 is available at http://xml.apache.org/dist/fop for downloading and testing.
It is planed to make the actual release in about a week (or two?) if no serious bugs show up.
Changes since 0.20.3 include:
- Support for background-image - FOP should now work with any JAXP1.1 compliant parser/transformer - The following JARs have been updated: Xerces to version 2.0.1, Xalan to version 2.3.1 and Batik to version 1.5beta2. - Fop has been compiled with Jimi support - Logging has been changed from LogKit to Avalon's Logger Interface - New hyphenation patterns: turkish, portuguese and czech - FOP should now work on a EBCDIC maschine - Support for comma-separated values for the font-family property - Russian and Czech messages for AWTViewer
For details see CHANGES file: http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/xml-fop/CHANGES?rev=220.127.116.11
Feedback/bugreports are welcome especially (but of course not limited) for the following issues:
- compiling FOP with Jdk1.4 under Windows - running FOP on a EBCDIC maschine - running FOP from Win98/ME command line - processing FOP generated PDFs with RIP engines/preflight (?) tools - custom font loading with BaseDir property
Needs to be done for the release: - check documentation (new jar versions, classpath etc.) - anything missing in Release Notes/CHANGES ? (apart from fixing my english ;-)
