Subject: [VOTE] Merge Temp_PCLSoftFont branch with trunk


Hi All,

This is a vote to merge the temporary branch for adding PCL soft font
support to FOP trunk.

What this allows for are TrueType fonts to be converted into a PCL native
font format. This moves FOP away from using AWT and rasterized characters
allowing for PCL output to potentially be generated over a cloud, better
rendering quality and smaller documents. Other font formats will still be
rasterized but TrueType will now default to being converted for PCL output.

If you want to give it a try please do. The branch can be found here:


This vote wll last 6 days (as I'm unavailable this weekend) and will
conclude next Monday. 

Here is my +1.
