  == FOP ==
- 18 separate commits to SVN. These are mostly bug fixes (including a couple of patches from
the community); but also includes support for PDF/VT and PDF Linearization. Now that the Batik
and commons releases have been completed we're in a position to start a FOP release. This
was recently agreed on the developers mailing list. The PDF Plug-in sub project will not be
released yet since this still depends on a snapshot of PDFBox. Once PDFBox v2.0 is released
we'll release PDF plug-in. The PMC agreed on this course of action since the PDF Plug-in an
optional module that only a small number of users are using.

  == BATIK ==
- 18 separate commits to SVN. This breaks down into refactoring to resolve the cyclic dependencies
between components, and some bug fixing in preparation for the release. We decided to do the
release after the Complex Script work has been put on hold for a while, and we received notification
of a security vulnerability. The Eclipse project has also requested that the fix for security
vulnerability be back ported to 1.6 and 1.7 versions. Thanks to Luis Bernardo for volunteering
to apply the patch to both branches and to prepare the releases. The mailing lists are fairly
quiet, with only 19 e-mails to the users list this quarter.

release after the Complex Script work has been put on hold for a while, and we received notification
of a security vulnerability. This security vulnerability was reported 1/23/2015 according
to ASF Security guidelines. The issue was resolved via a PATCH being developed and deployed
as a general Release. The Eclipse project has also requested that the fix for security vulnerability
be back ported to 1.6 and 1.7 versions. Thanks to Luis Bernardo for volunteering to apply
the patch to both branches and to prepare the releases. The mailing lists are fairly quiet,
with only 19 e-mails to the users list this quarter.
  
  Batik v1.8 was released on 17th March
