Subject [jira] Commented: (PDFBOX-675) Upgrade .Net build to use IKVM version 0.42
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2010 18:05:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-675?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12855053#action_12855053

Daniel Wilson commented on PDFBOX-675:

I deleted the patch since I figured out how to make the change to the source XML.

That is committed in revision 932037.

> Upgrade .Net build to use IKVM version 0.42 
> --------------------------------------------
>                 Key: PDFBOX-675
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-675
>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Daniel Wilson
>            Assignee: Daniel Wilson
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 1.2.0
> The current .Net build script (ant build.NET) is for IKVM 0.38, released 15 months ago.
> Since that time, IKVM has grown to support a larger portion of the Java object model.
 I am currently investigating the possibility of improved font support, as our IKVM-compiled
version crashes if PDType1CFont.prepareAWTFont is called.
> The downside of the upgrade will be loss of support for the .Net 1.1 Framework.  In my
opinion, that is not a big deal as very few projects still rely on it.
> I welcome opinions before committing any changes.
