The Apache XML Graphics team is pleased to announce the immediate availability 
of Apache FOP Version 2.0 [1].

Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) [2] is an output independent print 
formatter driven by XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO) [3]. FOP is a Java 
application that reads a formatting object tree and renders the resulting pages 
to a specified output format, of which a variety of formats are supported. 
Apache FOP is published under the Apache License v2.0.

Because of changes to the API, the version number has been bumped to 2.0. Java 
6 or later is minimum runtime required. This release fixes a number of bugs. In
