Planning and branches of FOP development

This is the development status of FOP. A branch has been created for maintenance releases while the development is done to address various performance and design issues.

Development Status

Development for 1.0DR1 is addressing the design issues for layout and performance. The new design focusing on making it possible to be conformant to the spec and be able to handle large documents. The development effort is roughly 50% towards a developers release.

The developers release should have the following: similar functionality to previous FOP releases, a rough API and a suitable design for developers to work on more functionality.

The timing of these events depends on progress made so it is not possible to predict any dates.
