we are using cocoon to generate png images from svg format. We use cocoon + batik + some xslt tranformations (Saxon) to do this.

I found that cocoon uses batik 1.6.1, but there was a bug in that version: when a special character, eg  é, appeared as the second or later character in a string, the rendering would fail with a java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException. More info: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=38158

This bug was fixed in version 1.7, so now my question: is it possible to create a new block in the repo that uses batik 1.7, or is it possible for me to include this newer version? I don't have a lot of experience with using cocoon/blocks.

thanks in advance,
