The Apache XML Graphics team is pleased to announce the release of
Apache FOP version 0.94.

FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is a print formatter driven by XSL
Formatting Objects [1] and an output independent formatter. It is a Java
application that reads a formatting object tree and renders the
resulting pages to a specified output. Output formats currently
supported include PDF, PS, PCL, AFP, Print and PNG.

This is the second production-level release after the big re-design
effort. It includes many bug fixes and new features, the most important
being:
- - auto-detection of the fonts installed on the system; the XML metrics
  generation is now optional;
- - support for the collapsing-border model in tables;
- - internal links in PDF now point to the exact location, and not to the
  top of the page;
- - support for UAX#14 type line breaking. This annex of the Unicode
  standard specifies rules for breaking text into lines depending on the
  language used.

The complete list of changes is available at
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.94/changes_0.94.html

FOP 0.94 implements the XSL-FO 1.1 recommendation to a high degree of
compliance. See the compliance page for a detailed overview:
