I'll have to second the recommendation for PrinceXml.

After investigating and trying at least 9 other open source kits I eventually gave up and went with PrinceXml. You can try the 'trial' version easily and it just works easily. Their support is actually good as well. I wish there was a good pdf toolkit that was open source. But they all seem to just do one odd piece of the puzzle poorly.

I guess I'll have to buy that shiny brick then. Because I can't imagine Apple giving a rat's ass about any third party benchmark. It hasn't even been available for more than six months and I can't imagine Apple marketing quoting anything they didn't make themselves.

Every time the world's underlying assumptions shift there's some backlash and attempt to prevent the future from inevitably coming. But honestly either I'm just too knowledgeable about current events or everything I've read about other historical similarities seems tame in comparison. Yeah it was more violent but the world was just more violent then. Easier to club some heads or burn some equipment than employ lawyers. The breadth and scale of the backlash across everything in the digital space is just depressing.

Copyright, first sale, fair use, etc.

This was just the equivalent of a book club (slightly monetized). A twist on a library. This is getting ridiculous.
