The Apache XML Graphics team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Apache FOP Version 2.5 [1].

Apache FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) [2] is an output independent print formatter driven by XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO) [3]. FOP is a Java application that reads a formatting object tree and renders the resulting pages to a specified output format, of which a variety of formats are supported. Apache FOP is published under the Apache License v2.0.

This release fixes a number of bugs. In addition the following significant functional enhancements are provided:

Allow to hide empty blocks from structure tree

For release notes see [4]. Source and binary distributions can be downloaded from an ASF Mirror at [5]. Further download information is available at [6]. Maven artifacts for this release are available at [7].

Note, that depending on which download mirror you use, it may take up to 24 hours to see the download images at [5].

The Apache XML Graphics team.

fop-2.5 seems to require maven:

/sources/fop/fop-2.5/fop/build.xml:618: Execute failed: Can
not run program "mvn" (in directory "/sources/fop/fop-2.5"): error=2, No such fi
le or directory

Since anyway a maven binary is needed to build self, and it is only used for fop (in the book), maybe just download the binary when building fop and not install it.

comment:4 by thomas, 3 years ago

Downloaded maven as binary.

cd ~/tmp
tar -xf apache-maven-3.6.3-bin.tar.gz
cd ~/tmp/fop/build/fop-2.5/fop
ant all javadocs

builds fine, but mvn downloads 82MB of other binaries into $HOME/.m2/

Did that too, and got almost 100MB. Will unpack the maven binary in /tmp, and go with that: maintaining a java stack is a book by itself...
