Issues for the Board

No issues at present.


I asked the PMC to consider a new Chair, as I have been in the role for over 2 years now. The PMC voted that I should continue in the role, and I have agreed to do so for a while longer. We have identified a potential new contributor/committer and the PMC also voted to increase the minimum Java version to 1.6, starting from the next release

Last new committer: Simon Steiner on 11/04/14

Last new PMC member: Luis Bernardo on 04/03/13


8 separate commits to SVN, of which 6 were general bug fixes, 1 was check style related, and the last was to ensure compatibility with Java 8. A release is planned in the next quarter

There were no releases this quarter.

The latest release is 1.5 (20 October 2012)


116 e-mails on fop-user mailing list this quarter; a few questions asked by users and answered by committers. Some new bugs logged and several patches have been submitted and processed. 85 separate commits in total to SVN. A vote to merge the finished font merging code into trunk passed in the last few days. Discussions have started on release planning. However, since an optional component of FOP has a snapshot dependency on PDFBox 2.0, we are unsure whether to release FOP now and the component later or to release both once PDFBox 2.0 is available.

There were no releases this quarter

The latest release is 1.1 (20 October 2012)
