Dear all,

this is to inform you that an evaluation version of XEP - an XSL FO formatter by
RenderX - has been upgraded to version 2.5. You can find the evaluation package
and download instructions on our site
at http://www.renderx.com/FO2PDF.html.

As compared to the previous version, XEP 2.5 has the following improvements:

 - support for proportional-column-width();
 - support for 'orphans' ('widows' are still unsupported);
 - support for 'fo:character';
 - support for PNG graphics;
 - some support for SVG graphics. Note that this is _very limited_, and hardly
    suitable to embed images produced by other applications;
 - more consistent support of absolutely positioned block containers;
 - line-breaking algorithm has been reworked to handle CJK scripts;
 - GUI-based setup program (for Sun JDK/JRE only).

 Changes specific to PDF Generator:

 - support for TrueType/OpenType fonts;
 - support for PDF bookmarks (via proprietary extensions);
 - support for setting PDF document info fields  inside an XSL FO document (via
proprietary extensions).

 Changes specific to PostScript Generator:

 - support for 'pdfmark' operators;
 - support for EPS graphics;
 - bug fixes to improve DSC conformance.

The examples on the site have been updated, and PostScript versions
of most examples have been provided.

Best regards,
Nikolai Grigoriev
