UJAC 0.9.16 released

Posted by Christian Lauer 2004-10-13

UJAC 0.9.15 released

This release adds some long awaited features like lists in
table cells. To make this possible this version uses the
itextpdf version, maintained by Paulo Sorares, because this
one supports more advanced feature than the current *official*
version of iText.

Futhermore the some attribute quirks have been fixed. The
'leading' attribute specifies the fixed leading of content lines
now. This one is added to the relative leading which is
calculated from the line spacing factor and the font size. The
vertical spacing before paragraphs can be specified by the
attribute 'spacing-before', the new attribute 'spacing-after' rules
the vertical spacing after the paragraph. These spacing rules
are implemented for all text containers, supported by iText.

Improved TOC support for the print module. Now not only chapters and sections are supported but phrases and table cells. Also the navigation from TOC entries to the TOC items is supported by linking them with anchors for those document positions.

Also like in every release, several bugs have been fixed.
