Subject: Image caching issue in FOP 0.20.5


I am seeking your help in sorting out memory issue in my application.

I am using FOP version 0.20.5. I am experiencing memory leakage in my application since I am using FOP 0.20.5 for PDF generation.

Recent heap dumps generated in my application shows lots of images (JPG and GIF) in the heap memory.
Heap dump shows class org.apache.fop.image.FopImageFactory as leak suspect.

Could you please help me in gettting answers for below mentioned questions:

1.      Image caching issue is there in FOP version 0.20.5?
2.      If yes can this issue be resolved by upgrading to higher version of FOP?
3.      If so please suggest appropriate version?

Please let me know what could be done to resolve this issue.
