Subject Re: fop support in cocoon1 fixed?

I have exactly the same problem that you have. FOP is essential to the

solution. As soon as you want to generate "large" pdf output, C1
gets performance problems, especially if you combine it (as I do) with

That is why we decided to test C2 in terms of stability,usability and
"migration". As I am in the middle of getting into C2, I cannot yet tell
you if its still too early or not. But I don't think that the problems
"performance" and "fop support" can be easily fixed in C1.
