Subject [Xmlgraphics Wiki] Update of "StatusReports/StatusReportForNovember2010" by SimonPepping
Date Mon, 01 Nov 2010 08:54:48 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "StatusReports/StatusReportForNovember2010" page has been changed by SimonPepping.


New page:
=== General Comments ===

There are no issues that require Board attention. Developer activity has been rather low for
all three subprojects, apart from the FOP work on Complex Scripts. A vote is ongoing to establish
Java 1.5 as the base version of the platform.

=== XML Graphics Commons ===

XGC's Gump builds started causing error reports when the build infrastructure was moved from
sun to openjdk. This is due to a dependency on com.sun Java classes, especially on the com.sun
JPEG codec. Very recently this dependency was removed, so that the project builds are successful
again. A vote is ongoing to merge new work on Color from a branch into trunk.

=== Batik ===

There have been practically no changes to the codebase in the last three months. User list
activity has gone down a bit but questions are mostly getting answers. Because Batik depends
on XGC, its Gump builds failed as well.

=== Fop ===

Support for Complex Scripts in FOP is being developed by Glenn Adams, who is sponsored for
this work by Basis Technologies. Completion of this work will make FOP truly global, as is
required in today's world, but this will take some time. The current phase focuses on Arabic
scripts. Because FOP depends on XGC, its Gump builds failed as well. With the help of infrastructure,
we have realised nightly builds for FOP. Old Renderer implementations for AFP, PCL, PDF, PS
were removed, to reduce redundancy in the code. Glenn Adams introduced a policy of no checkstyle,
javadoc and ant warnings.

=== Deployment to Maven repository ===

With help of a fellow ASF committer the artifacts of the XML Graphics Commons 1.4 and FOP
1.0 releases were deployed to the Maven repository, one month after the release of FOP.
