Dear XEP-announce subscribers,
Trial edition of XEP 4.0 engine is available for download. This is a
new XEP release that has a lot of new functionality and improvements:
1. XEP 4.0 uses a single configuration file for all subcomponents:
formatter options, fonts, and hyphenation are now configured from
a single location. Font aliases can depend on the language setting and
resolve to multiple font families.
2. Table processing is now fully conformant to the XSL Recommendation.
Added support for automatic table width adjustment (table-layout="auto")
and collapsed table borders.
3. Additional prepress features are supported: spot and registration
colors; bleeds and trim offsets; creation of advanced printer marks
4. More SVG features are supported: clipping implementation now
supports arbitrary combination of path, shapes, and text; added
fill-opacity and stroke-opacity support in PDF 1.4 output.
5. Improvements in font handling:
- TrueType collection fonts supported in PDF;
- Added limited support for OpenType fonts with CFF outlines;
- Implemented automatic font slanting;
- Basic support for ligaturization.
If necessary XEP can work without write access to local file system by
storing all intermediate files in memory. Table processing speeded up,
memory consumption reduce. Documentation rearranged and refactored.
Deprecated Java interfaces have been removed, enriched interfaces of
FormatterImpl and Validator classes.
Inline keep conditions work on rx:index-item elements.
XEP distribution now includes XEP Assistant, a graphical configuration a
and formatting tool.
