Hi, all

Another committer reminded me to send this.

FOP 0.14.0 has just been released.  This release introduces important 
new functionality, some of which is described below.

The amount of SVG support, operating as a special-purpose processor for SVG 
namespace elements within an fo:instream-foreign-object, is extensive, to say 
the least.
We are well on the way to releasing a FOP 1.0 late this year which has full 
Extended Conformance with the XSL FO spec. SVG -> PDF (and likely other 
output formats; currently our AWT Viewer also displays rendered SVG) is, and 
will be, a primary graphics mechanism in FOP.

Regards, Arved Sandstrom
