2 commits to SVN this quarter. 1 bug fix, and a new feature to add support for PDF/VT generation.

There were no releases this quarter

The latest release is 2.0 (3 October 2014)


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 is an optional module used only by a small number of users.

The FOP User list has a slow but steady stream of questions being raised and answered; 77 e-mails in total.

There were no releases this quarter

The latest release is 1.1 (20 October 2012)


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. 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

The latest version is 1.8 (17 March 2015)
