Subject Re: Status of the Postscript Renderer
Date Wed, 04 Jun 2003 12:59:15 GMT
The PS renderer is under active development but progress, as with other
portions of FOP, is not very fast. The focus of development is on the
redesign, however. Only bugfixes are made to the maintenance branch code.
Help is always welcome.

The problem with character set encodings should be fixed in CVS.

The problem with JPEG images could be related to the fact that it's the
only feature that uses PostScript Level 3 code which may not be
available on your printer. Does it work when you open the PostScript
file in GhostView?
