Subject [Xmlgraphics Wiki] Update of "StatusReports/StatusReportForNovember2009" by SimonPepping
Date Wed, 04 Nov 2009 09:31:23 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Xmlgraphics Wiki" for change notification.

The "StatusReports/StatusReportForNovember2009" page has been changed by SimonPepping.
The comment on this change is: Next status report, to be submitted to the ASF board on 11
November.
http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics/StatusReports/StatusReportForNovember2009

--------------------------------------------------

New page:
'''General Comments'''

There are no issues that require Board attention.

-----

'''XML Graphics Commons'''

No releases, no major changes, just a few improvements and fixes in various components.

'''Batik'''

One of the three committers has taken a break from Batik development for a few months to finish
university studies. This leaves one committer and one active contributor to answer queries
on the mailing list. A new release, consolidating bug fixes and small improvements, would
be good, but due to lack of committer time, no release was made.

'''Fop'''

A new release is overdue, but due to lack of committer time, no release was made.

Vincent finished his temporary solution to enable changing page widths in a page sequence.
Vincent also finished work to add accessibility to the PDF files created by FOP. This work
was started by Jost Klopfstein, and earlier worked on by Jeremias.

Two developers expressed serious interest in participating in FOP's development. One of them
was explicitly backed by his company's management, which is a good thing in itself. In the
ensuing discussion that company turned out to have expertise in non-Western scripts, which
could enhance FOP's coverage of such scripts. We would be very happy if this would give us
two new committers.
