Yes we have had a few requests for two-up continuous. It is on our product
marketing requirements list for a future release. XEP 4.16 will be released
shortly and after that we will begin the process of deciding which
functionality makes it into 4.17.


I would welcome an open discussion on this forum if you like ... kind of a
virtual product management meeting. We weigh the time to develop along with
the demand and marketplace


Other items that have been offered in no particular order include:


PDF Annotations

Extended "graphic" support in PDF to include multimedia types (of course
only valid for PDF Formats):



                Other video

SVG enhancements




Table markers

XPS Output

XPS Input as a image (actually this is already done at customers as they do
XPS->XEPOUT and that is supported as an image)

PPML Output

XForms Output

Native support for charts or incorporation of a Chart Server component

Support for Indic languages


Of course, this is not a list of all things in 4.17, this is a list of
candidate functionality. Certainly major features like table markers or a
new backend one would find one, maybe two in a release that takes place
every 4 to 5 months.


The disscussion is open to all. Please chime in with your own desired
features, All these requirements are managed on an internal Wiki and I am
the gatekeeper.

Subject: [xep-support] Two up continuous


Has anyone else ever had the need to create PDF documents that display "Two
up continuous" by default? Unless I am missing something XEP only supports
the options auto, single, and continuous. I know iText has an option for
two up continuous, but I really hate to have to add another step in my
process to rewrite the PDF with iText. It would be really nice it XEP would
add "Two up" and "Two up continuous" to the list of values that can be used
in the <?xep-pdf-page-layout value?> processing instruction.
