XML GRAPHICS COMMONS

23 separate commits to SVN, most of which were related to the release, but 2 were for general bug fixes.

There was 1 release this quarter; Version 2.0

The latest release is 2.0 (3 October 2014)

FOP

61 separate commits to SVN. This is a mixture of feature development; Complex Script support in SVG and bug fixes. Luis Bernardo also created a branch for a prototype implementation of fo:float. The next release is currently dependent on the PDFBox v2.0 release. I note from PDFBox's October Report this has been deferred, so we may need to try and refactor our code to use the 1.8.x branch instead. The PMC still needs to discuss this and decide.

The FOP User list has a slow but steady stream of questions being raised and answered; 90 e-mails in total. The FOP Team invested some time to switch from using GUMP to the Apache Jenkins buildbot for continuous integration.

There were no releases this quarter

The latest release is 1.1 (20 October 2012)

BATIK

23 separate commits to SVN. Some of these were related to the release, but some are due to the development of Complex Script Support in SVG. We have also been working towards a release. We ran the test suite and discovered a large percentage of the tests are failing, so we are currently reviewing the failures and trying to resolve them before we do the release.

There were no releases this quarter.

The latest version is 1.7 (6 January 2008)
