Just to clarify. We are talking about FontBox which is part of the PDFBox 
project. We don't have any difficulties to release a new version. We are working 
on a new major release containing a lot of new stuff and refactorings. Some of 
them are within FontBox but most are within the core component itself. We are 
planning to cut a release in the late summer but we can't guarantee that as 
there are still a lot of things to do. Any help is welcome, but most of the 
stuff isn't about FontBox anymore but the PDF spec and java rendering stuff.

Saying that, I'm afraid the FOP guys have to fork FontBox if they are in a hurry.
