Subject [VOTE] Merge Temp_PCLSoftFont branch with trunk
Date Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:33:06 GMT
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.
