Subject Re: Decouple fo from skinconf (was Re: svn commit: r618400 )
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2008 11:05:08 GMT
The pdf-plugin will not work with 0.8 as is because it was 
decided to move critical libs from the plugin back into core.

Because of this, the plugin will only work with 0.8 if 0.8 
gets patched.

What I haven't tested so far is if 0.8 will work with a 
locally deployed plugin that is marked for 0.9?
Or would somebody wanting to use the new plugin with 0.8 
also have to patch the <property name="forrest.version" 
value="0.8"/>?

Does anybody know or can anybody suggest a better solution?

Best regards,
Ferdinand Soethe
