Nothing special this time. Work on XML Graphics Commons hasn't started due to the heavy activity in FOP. This is likely to change after the first release.
Steady activity rate with bugfixes and improvements. No special events. The move of W3C licensed classes to XML Commons Externals is still open.
Lots of activity. Patches are coming in from new contributors and a good number of bugs have already been fixed due to feedback from people who are trying out the new code. We are in the final preparations for the first alpha/preview release. A little later than planned, though.
