Apache XML Graphics Commons is a library that consists of several reusable components used by Apache Batik and Apache FOP. Many of these components can easily be used separately outside the domains of SVG and XSL-FO. You will find components such as a PDF library, an RTF library, Graphics2D implementations that let you generate PDF and PostScript files, and much more.

Release Notes: The ImageWriter abstraction now supports the writing of multi-page formats like TIFF. This uses the Image I/O API. A default implementation was provided for AbstractGraphics2D.drawText(ACI, float, float) so that PSGraphics2D supports painting of text using the AttributedCharacterIterator. Various fixes and improvements were made in the ImageWriter abstraction. A problem where the generation of the PostScript setdash command was assuming that only integer values can be used was fixed.
Release Notes: This release contains several components from Batik and FOP: image codecs, image writer abstraction, I/O classes, Java2D helpers, and a PostScript library with a Graphics2D implementation.
