Dear list subscribers,

RenderX is presenting the first public release of DiType 2.0.

DiType is a Digital Typesetter, it accepts manuscripts in a number of 
popular XML vocabularies and turns them into PDF and PostScript 
documents. There is a good article about DiType on 
http://www.renderx.com/tools/ditype.html, so I will not repeat it here.

This release contains a new approach to multiplexing implemented in the 
feature to run more the one lambda process (each containing major part 
of the software), preserving single entry point for clients. These 
processes may be distributed among several CPUs or CPU cores.

Another improvement is an up-to-date set of free fonts, allowing to get 
non-latin inputs formatted without any configuration actions.

As usual, several bugs have been fixed since DiType 2.0 beta release.

A streamlined list of licenses tuned for both not-for-profit and 
commercial use is available at 

The next release is planned very interesting: SVG backend, Unicode 
annotations in PDF, limiting resource sizes, support for XML Catalogs.

Best regards,
  Michael Sulyaev, mailto:msulyaev@renderx.com
