FOP wraps Batik
19:26, 28 Aug 2001 UTC | Edd Dumbill

The latest version of the Apache XML Project's XSL Formatting Objects processor, FOP, incorporates the Batik SVG renderer.

This gives FOP much improved support for rendering SVG diagrams. FOP is a print formatter capable of processing XSL-FO and creating PDF files. Other improvements in the FOP 0.20 release include improved support for tables, hyphenation support for more languages, and performance enhancements.

Announcing the release, Arved Sandstrom also mentioned current development priorities for FOP, which include "addition of support for markers, stabilization of APIs, testing infrastructure, and a concentration on basics."

More information and download details are available from the FOP home page.
