XML News from Monday, March 10, 2008

Sun has posted version 0.5.5 of xmlroff, an open source XSL Formatting Objects to PDF and PostScript converter. (Web site not yet updated though.) xmlroff is written in C for Linux, and relies on the libxml2, libxslt, and the GLib, and GObjectfrom GTK+ and GNOME (though neither GTK+ nor Gnome is required). It also needs PDFlib, FreeType2, and Fontconfig. xmlroff can be run from the command line. It also includes a libfo library. This version improves table rendering.
