HP's FOA tool for authoring XSL-FO documents has gone open source with the release of version 0.2.0.

Written by Fabio Giannetti, and first released last year, FOA is a Java-based tool for the editing of XSLT sheets for XSL-FO output that does not require the user to write XSLT or XSL-FO explicitly.

The new release includes two areas of new functionality: table support, and interactive preview. The interactive preview allows page-browsing and zooming, and the previewing of "bricks" (layout components).

The new FOA home page is now at SourceForge.
