Subject Re: File size improvements for PS renderer

Hi Arnd

I think so. Just file a patch to BugZilla as soon as possible.

Just keep in mind that the FOP maintenance branch is (from our POV) in
bugfixing-only mode. Additions from developers will probably get
included but it'll be a dead end. We're looking for manpower to get the
redesign to a developer's release as soon as possible.

Christian, when do you plan to release 0.20.5? Seems like no major bugs
are around, right?
