+        In particular, the PDF output plugin has many improvements, uses a newer Apache FOP
+        It is much more configurable, See its plugin documentation.

+        Forrest (via Cocoon) re-generates every document. Every PDF now gets differences
+        due to some internal metadata dates, even though its content might not have changed.
+        When the documentation set is deployed, e.g. via svn, these changed files will also
+        be deployed.

+        For the Forrest project website, we decided to stop (via skinconf.xml) using PDFs
+        for every page and do it only for some specific documents.

+        Remember that if you need to use an old version of any plugin, then it can be

+        to the required plugin name.
