a while ago I've been talking about pango cairo and how to generate pdf with a couple of tables.
In the meantime I've worked on it, improving and enhancing new kinds of elements. This has lead to the creation of a small project, a library providing a simple framework for generating mostly PDF reports (I haven't tried to generate SVG or something else yet).
After a couple of release requests, I've found finally the time to publish a sort of working code.
Here's the git repository and here you can download the snapshot tarball.
Any patches welcome.
