No, there is no support for reading heads :-)
Major code changes. The way in which the formatting object tree creates the area tree has radically changed to allow much easier support for keeps, etc in the future. Numerous bugs were introduced (hence the delay in release) but even more fixed. In particular, line breaks work within inline-sequences now. FOP now uses namespaces. The prefix "fo" is no longer hard-coded. This version supports all of the Latin-1 characters now as well as some others available in PDF. Font metrics and character encoding mappings are specified in XML at compile time. Thanks to Fotis Jannidis for doing the conversion to XML for me. Basic display-graphic support is now in, but I consider it unusable at present.
