After upgrading to use recent bug-fix releases of Pango and Cairo, Iâ€™m now eyeballing and verifying the output of over 300 tests with differences, but so far the Pango and Cairo bug fixes donâ€™t seem to have resulted in any fortuitous fixes for xmlroff bugs. At least the xmlroff testing module automates identifying the tests with differences so I donâ€™t have to check the output of several hundred other tests.
xmlroff 0.3.99 is now available from http://xmlroff.org/. This is an development snapshot that includes a new manpage in DocBook XML and a truly experimental SVG output capability. The “testing” and “testsuite” modules are also updated.
In one sense this is snapshot of xmlroff as it was when I was told that I was RIFed (funny how everything seems to come back to that these days), but it is really more a snapshot of the changes made when I had a week off work in mid-July.
