Hi Markus,

A few comments, if I may:

- You mentioned some text-related issues.These are well-known. Currently, the 
text engine is being completely rewritten, which will resolve the problems you 

- Your statement that transparency effects aren't supported by PDF export is 
completely false. The truth is that some PDF versions (PDF 1.3, X-1a, X-3) 
don't support transparency, so if you need the feature, you have to choose a 
more modern PDF version. It would be nice if you could remove the warning 
"Don't use it" from your blog.

-  As Alex has already pointed out, some of the "new" features you mentioned 
have been there for ages. I'm glad you finally discovered them, though ;)
