Quick question regarding the redesign, is this happening in public (ie
on a mailing list somewhere?) and will the redesign support features
such as wrapping text round images / floating regions (which I was told
is not currently supported.)

Thanks,
Steve

Yes, you can only tell the logger to output more (DEBUG level with -d,
INFO level without). All output is sent to standard out.

Setting a logger (when calling FOP from Java) would enable you to have a
much finer control over logging. You could have the logger send all
messages to a remote log service for example. But you need some Java
knowledge.

*GRIN* Thanks especially to Henrik Olson for that one!

Not likely.

No. Next version will most probably be a FOP 1.0DR (Developer's release,
alpha quality). We're currently redesigning FOP as you might have
noticed on the website. But it'll be some time (months) until then. By
the way, we're always looking for helping hands! (That's our plea. :-)
