New stable version 4.16 released

Categories: Development, speedata Publisher

Six months after releasing the last stable 4.14, the speedata Publisher is now at version 4.16. There have been a few major improvements:

  • Rewrite the MetaPost integration, including support for opacity and text.
  • Rewrite the XPath parser and re-activate the Go based XML parser for better error handling and data access.

Also a few minor enhancements

As always: your layouts should work without changes.

Preparing the version 5 release

The next development releases will introduce some more drastic changes that could (but shouldn’t) lead to backward incompatible changes. I’ll switch the default xpath parser and the default font loader to the modern replacements.


The speedata Publisher is available for download as always on the download page. There is also a detailed change log.
