Simon Steiner

The Apache XML Graphics team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Apache FOP Version 2.2 [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.

 

This release fixes a number of bugs. In addition the following significant functional enhancements are provided:

    Allow generation of bold/italic versions of fonts for PDF

    Allow to convert OTF fonts to Type 1 for Postscript

    Deduplicate PDF content streams

    Update to PDFBox 2

    Transition from Ant to Maven Build Process

 

For release notes see [4]. Source and binary distributions can be downloaded from an ASF Mirror at [5]. Further download information is available at [6]. Maven artifacts for this release are available at [7].
