The Apache FOP team is excited to announce the release of Apache FOP 0.90 alpha 1, the first preview release after over three years of redesign and after two and a half years without a new release.
Apache FOP is the Apache Software Foundation's XSL-FO implementation written in Java with support for several output formats like PDF, PostScript, Plain Text, RTF etc. This new release brings you long-awaited features like keeps on all implemented FO elements, support for reference-orientation, better indent behaviour, various improvements on inline elements like baseline-shift and improved leaders and image handling, improved border painting etc. Please check out the compliance page to view the differences between 0.20.5 and 0.90 alpha 1: http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/compliance.html IMPORTANT! This release is the first after a big redesign effort on the whole FOP codebase. This release is to be considered ALPHA quality and it is intended as a preview release encouraging people to take a look at the new version and to provide feedback to the developers. Please not only report to us problems you might experience but also tell us if it works for you. If you find out that this version works fine for you, you're welcome to use it but please test it thoroughly as we don't consider this release ready for every production environment.
