Subject [jira] Commented: (PDFBOX-675) Upgrade .Net build to use IKVM version 0.42
Date Thu, 08 Apr 2010 18:41:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-675?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12855076#action_12855076

Andreas Lehmkühler commented on PDFBOX-675:

It's quite easy:

- make your changes to the xml file(s)
- generate the documentation running "mvn site install" in the root directory
- checkin both the modified xml and html  file(s)
- the update will be done automatically

I've made some minor changes to your xml file. There were some issues with the order and the
nesting of some elements. I've commited both in revision 932055

> 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.
