new version of FOP
After a mad frantic rush to get something out before I leave for North America tomorrow, I've just put a new version of FOP at http://www.jtauber.com/fop/ FOP is the world's first (and still, I believe, only) formatter driven by XSL formatting objects. It is a Java application that reads an XML document representing formatting objects (eg the output of XT) and then turns it into a PDF document. Version 0.6.0 is a complete re-write in light of the most recent XSL working draft. It only implements a fraction of the formatting objects and properties but the overall framework is now there and it should be relatively easy to add more support (assuming the XSL working draft doesn't change too radically). FOP should still be considered alpha. I now plan to release new versions pretty regularly, particularly in response to requests for certain features. So if FOP doesn't do what you need, let me know and I'll give priority to implementing your requested feature. Note, though, that I will be out of regular email contact for the next two weeks (I'll probably be reading occasionally, but no guarantee I'll reply straight away). If you are interested in finding out more about XSL formatting objects and how FOP works, please come along to the XML/DOM Track on Developers' Day at WWW8 where I shall be giving a presentation on FOP.
