Flying Saucer R7 is out
The Flying Saucer team is proud to announce that we have just released version R7 Final.
Flying Saucer is an open source XHTML renderer I started a few years ago here on Java.net. It can render any XHTML + CSS 2.1 document as a Swing component. With the right stylesheet you can actually render any XML document directly. And you aren't just limited to Swing. Some developers are using it to render images and PDF files. I recently wrote an article that describes how you can render full PDFs with pagination, headers, and page numbers.
Flying Saucer really is a fantastic way to render XHTML content. It has taken off far beyond what I originally thought when I started it three years ago. I'd especially like to thank Peter Brant for all of his code improvements and to Patrick Wright for taking over as project leader when I had to devote time to other projects.
