0.20.5 release

2003-06-17 Thread Christian Geisert
Ok,

RC3a seems to be rather stable and the changes since then look
non-critical to me. What about doing the release now (read: next days)
(and maybe 0.20.5a later if we get more hyphenation patterns back)
Or should we make the changes proposed by Jörg (improved memory
usage with tables - see 
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=fop-devm=105399053227758 )
which would require another release candidate.

Comments please!

branch, waht about including the fixes mentione here:

It would need some testing (read 0.20.5rc4)
Nooo, no more RCs for 0.20.5 please
It's almost one year after the last release and as it seems
quite stable now so I would really like to make the release
soon.
Yes I know we agreed on 0.20.5 beeing the last release from
maintenance branch but making RCs after RCs is IMHO worser
than making changes after the last release and providing
daily builds or whatever.

Todos, as I see them:
- Remove all incompatible hyphenation files from CVS which are not clear

So remove everything excpet fi, pl and pt?


- Find Apache-compatible hyphenation files.


Would be the best solution.


- Contact the authors of non-GPL and non-LPPL hyphenation files for
  permission to use and redistribute their hyphenation files.


Could be troublesome (for example the german pattern file mentions three 
authors)
Any volunteers?

- Maybe write a parser for Tex hyphenation files so they can be directly
  read by FOP (without conversion to XML, so people can download the
  hyphenation files themselves and make them responsible to follow the
  individual licences)


IIUC we don't have to change the way the pattern are read, the problem 
is the distribuition.
For example it should be ok if we create a new SourceForge project with
just the hyphenation patterns and license it under LPPL. Then people 
could download the jar, put it in the lib dir and everything should be fine.

- Maybe adjust FOP so it is more flexible reading hyphenation files.
- Add something to future release notes about hyphenation.

No. The patterns in FOP are currently in some XML format. The patterns
found on the web are in an ASCII format. FOP needs to be adjusted so it
can read the ASCII files directly, I think.


I was thinking about distributing our .hyp files via SourceForge under LPPL.

Ouch. I don't think we can distribute FOP without english
hyphenation.


Sure we *can* ;-)  But if it's a good thing ...


I just had another look at the LPPL and the other files.
The LPPL file I examined seems to be harmless. The license
says we can distribute the hyphenation XML file as derived
from the original TeX hyphenation file as long as there is
a pointer/URL to the original The Program. It's not quite
clear to me what The Program is in case of the hyphenation
file, but it doesn't seem to include much more than the
hyphenation file itself, in this case, as there isn't much
more in the directory. The only other condition is that
the file must have another name (no problem).


And IMHO (and IANAL etc.) this is the crux as the Apache Software
License does not forbid renamming the files.
Yes, that's hairsplitting and comletly against common sense
but remember we're talking about legal issues her.


I think we are safe for the source distribution including
LPPL hyphenation files.
A binary distribution is another matter because of the compiled
*.hyph files, which are obviously derived. But again it should


Hu? Above you said the XML files are also derived. What's the
difference between source and binary distribution?

[..]


As for the other files, I think es.xml is safe too. While
there's mentioned the source was taken from Lout, it does not
put it automatically under GPL, and there is a license further
down the file which reads roughly like the artistic license.


Ok.

[..]


And, well, I hope our PetroBras friend changed enough of the
pt.xml to claim copyright, as he assigned it summarily to
the ASF... nice, but a real legal burden! I checked it in, but
now I think I should have asked for a paper first.


So I'll remove it for RC2 and it will hopefully be resolved till the 
final release.


I had another look at the files and the following seem to be ok too:
en_GB.xml - may be freely distributed.
it.xml - Use of the original work granted by the author

Hi,
I more or less fixed the leader generation causing all sorts of

- The state machine detecting line breaks is brittle. It will probably

  I'm again tempted to do something about this.


Did this work with older releases?
If not it isn't really necessary to fix this IMHO.


- If the source contains whitespace at the end of the text in a block,
  the last line of the block will have a space appended.
  Therefore
fo:block text-align-last=justifyEntry fo:leader
  leader-pattern=dots/32
/fo:block
  will not be properly right aligned.
  I have no idea how to get rid of said space. Should we simply
  recommend to avoid whitespace at the end of blocks if alignment
  is critical?


As I would like to do the release *soon* we could add this to the

Here's some ideas:

If there's a leader in a line, then make the InlineSpaces non resizable, 
and make the WordArea that was generated by the leader resizable (or 
expand LeaderArea to cover all leaders, not just the rules).

Thanks for your analysis!
I managed to workaround bug #15936 with making all InlineSpaces non 
resizable if a LineArea contains a leader. This renders leader.fo a bit

Greetings all,

 From our discussion last December, it seems clear to me that most of
the subprojects are not interested in becoming top-level projects.  It
also seems clear that people are interested broad based representation
in the XML PMC.   I think that the best way to improve the issues
related to project oversight is to have a series of small refactorings.
So here's my proposal for the first refactoring:

We ask each subproject to nominate 1 (or 2) people from that project to
be a part of the XML PMC.  From my experience, I think that it will
be better to have 2 people rather than one in order to share workload,
etc.   I believe that both Axis (is Axis planning on taking SOAP with
it) and Cocoon are in the process of creating their own PMC's.  They
would obviously be exempt from this.

I know that we're going to have some discussion about this (lets keep it
in general@) -- I encourage it -- but I've also noticed that things tend
to peter out after while and nothing happens, so I want to have an
endmarker.  I propose to limit discussion on this proposal until next
Friday Jan 24.  If this proposal is still being considered on the 24th,
then I'd propose that the subprojects nominate their folks by the
following Friday, Jan 31.

daedalus (xml.apache.org) from icarus (cvs.apache.org)
every 6 hours, starting at midnight Pacific Time (where daedalus is
hosted).

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 ;-)


Enjoy,
Christian

Hi.

I am experience problem when I am trying to get output from the FOP as png.
Images are not shown in the result png.

Could someone help me with it.


First of all you need to tell us which FOP version you are using.
If it's 0.20.4 you need to download Jimi from SUN at: 
http://java.sun.com/products/jimi/
extract the archive and copy JimiProClasses.zip to FOP's lib dir and 
rename it to jimi-1.0.jar.

This is actually mentioned in the release notes and the FAQ.
And it is a user question which should be posted to fop-user

Yes it's needed for extensions written in languages other than Java,
but for that you need a jar with the extension language anyway so
IMHO it makes no sense to distribute bsf.jar.

Hello there!

What do you think about

Stefan asks us to use something like
float currentLetterSpacing = (float) 9.99;

instead of

float currentLetterSpacing = Float.NaN

in PDFRenderer.java due to jre-1.3.1 for linux-alpha bug.
For me it looks too patchy. I suggest to resolve the bug as WONTFIX as 

I would use Float.MAX_VALUE instead of (float) 9.99

web.xml: keep it with the *.java.

servlet.jar to the lib directory, or use a

defining properties for the CLI).


I had planed to remove the old docs/example/embedding and add
the contrib/servlet stuff to the distributen for the release
but if you want to change this I don't mind.
This has at least the advantage of one classpath less to take care of.

Hack of the repository looks feasible, I did it once (one more to do is 
to modify parent CVS/Entry file, which lists all child directories as 
D/foo-dir). Lets try on a non crucial directory first :)

Won't this break old releases?
For example checking out FOP with tag fop-0_20_3 then build.sh
will probably fail.

The question is actually whether contrib/servlet stuff is included into the 
distribution. If so, I don't see any reason to duplicate java code and war.
Just need to change documentation and probably leave explanatory readme file 
in the examples/embedding directory.
If not, the duplication seems reasonable.
Looking to the archive [1] I see Joerg said Contrib/servlet is not 
distributed, instead, the Java source and a war file is in 
docs/examples/embedding. I believe we should wait till Joerg is back to 
clarify that.

My intention. I just wanted to get this started.


Sounds like the only problem is that the contrib/servlet stuff
is not in the distribution.
I'll add this and remove the old docs/example/embedding stuff.

I would rather do this after the release.


that will take another week or two, I guess. Especially because I'd like

IMHO documentation changes (in contrast to code changes) are no problem
after the release candidate.

Also following other project's conventions. The config files get
included in the jar, so I think they ARE source.


Another issue with the conf dir is that it's also part

docs for maintenance release

Hi,

for the documentation for the maintenance release I think the
best thing is to copy src/documentation over from trunk and then
add a simple exec command=forrest to build.xml

8.26--that gives you the A4 width and US length, that is, the

So, if nobody complains I'll make it 8,26 x 11 in by default.


I'd only change the trunk and leave maintenance branch as it is

Great.


I believe it makes sense to add the changes to the maintenance

Sure .. RC should be out this week.


in turn, they will be useful to inform the awt and awt/print renderer
in the redesign, so I'll separately submit them to there if necessary.

It's been a while since I've sent in patches, and wanted to check
whether the preferred course is to submit the full sources (it affects
3 source files), or only diffs. And, if diffs, should they be
against current CVS or against the 0.20.4 release.


diff -u against current maintenance branch would be the best.

I just discoverd that basic-link isn't working as expected

It seems that mergelinks() is the problem so I'll change

The trunk code uses the java ICC profile to load and store the data.

So does anyone know what should be done?
Should it be written out differently, or simply avoid the java ICC

Sorry, my knowledge about ICC color profiles is very limited.
