Subject: [ANN] Apache FOP 0.95 Released

  [[ I forward the following announcement for FOP 0.95, as
     requested by Jeremias, --drkm ]]

Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is a print formatter
driven by XSL Formatting Objects [1] and an output independent
formatter. It is a Java application that reads a formatting
object tree and renders the resulting pages to a specified
output. Output formats currently supported include PDF, PS, PCL,
AFP, Print and TIFF/PNG. Apache FOP is Open Source software and
published under the Apache License v2.0.

It took longer than expected but we're happy to present the final
Apache FOP 0.95 stable release. This is basically a bugfix
release to 0.95beta.  The most important changes since the
previous stable release (0.94) are:

- many bug fixes and improvements in tables, better support for
  keeps and breaks, new features: conditional borders and
  background on columns and header/footer/body;
- better image handling thanks to the new image loading framework
  provided by the Apache XML Graphics Commons dependency;
- improvements and bugfixes for font handling and font
- performance improvements and memory optimizations for the
  property handling in the FO tree.
- elimination of a potential multi-threading problem.
- some feature enhancements for RTF output (partial fo:leader
  support, fo:page-number-citation)

Please note that support for Java 1.3 has been dropped. Only one
type of binaries is provided now, that will run on 1.4+ JREs.

Other important release notes are available at
