      Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is a print formatter driven by
      XSL Formatting Objects [1] and an output independent formatter. It is a
      Java application that reads a formatting object tree and renders the
      resulting pages to a specified output. Output formats currently
      supported include PDF, PS, PCL, AFP, Print and TIFF/PNG. Apache FOP is
      Open Source software and published under the Apache License v2.0.

      It took longer than expected but we're happy to present the final Apache
      FOP 0.95 stable release. This is basically a bugfix release to 0.95beta.
      The most important changes since the previous stable release (0.94) are:
      - many bug fixes and improvements in tables, better support for keeps
      and breaks, new features: conditional borders and background on
      columns and header/footer/body;
      - better image handling thanks to the new image loading framework
      provided by the Apache XML Graphics Commons dependency;
      - improvements and bugfixes for font handling and font
      auto-detection/-registration;
      - performance improvements and memory optimizations for the property
      handling in the FO tree.
      - elimination of a potential multi-threading problem.
      - some feature enhancements for RTF output (partial fo:leader support,
      fo:page-number-citation)

      Please note that support for Java 1.3 has been dropped. Only one type of
      binaries is provided now, that will run on 1.4+ JREs.
