'''General Comments'''

One new committer (Dieter von Holten, account creation pending) with write access to Batik.
We hope this brings new energy into Batik.


'''XML Graphics Commons'''

Our new subproject XML Graphics Commons has finally started and has been populated with the
first classes from Batik and FOP. Version 1.0 has been released 2006-04-17. We will continue
to migrate components as time allows to work towards a clear dependency tree inside the XML
Graphics project.


Steady activity rate with bugfixes and improvements. The Batik website is about to be converted
to use Apache Forrest. Batik will be affected by the new license policy (Rhino, NPL). The
move of the W3C licensed DOM API classes to XML Commons Externals is still not completed which
is a precondition for the next release.


Lots of bugfixing and some new features, too. One release: 0.92 beta (2006-04-18). This is
the last beta release before finally going for 1.0. The API is finalized and we're quickly
approaching production grade for most use cases. We've been able to complete the rather long
IP clearance process (took us more than 4 months) for the AFP renderer and we've been able
to resurrect the PCL renderer, so FOP now has two new output formats.

We've got two students for the GSoC wanting to implement long-missing features: auto-table
layout and floats. We hope the applications get through and we can get over another milestone
for FOP.
