    ReportLab are proud to announce not one but two major releases of our PDF
    document generation framework.

    The ReportLab PDF Toolkit lets you generate rich flowing documents in PDF
    from dynamic data, complete with multiple columns, tables and charts, at
    extremely high speeds; and to generate charts and data graphics in PDF and
    bitmap formats. It was first released in mid-2000 and the previous stable
    release, 1.20, was in late 2004.

    The 2.0 release includes many new features, and works with Unicode or UTF8
    input throughout. This simplifies many things but may break old code that
    uses non-ASCII input. It should be trivial to upgrade your app using the
    Python codecs package, which now includes codecs for most of the world's
    languages.

    We have also produced a 1.21 release with a number of minor enhancements
    and bug fixes since 1.20, and with the old character handling behaviour.
    This should provide a safe upgrade for all existing users.

    ReportLab's commercial products (Report Markup Language, Diagra and
    PageCatcher) also have their own 2.0 and 1.21 releases and are documented
    on http://developer.reportlab.com/index.html. Open source users are
    encouraged to review the RML examples and test cases, which provide very
    clear examples of what's possible with the underlying Python objects.


    Best regards,


    John
