The screencast below demonstrates
PDF Creator for Umbraco 2.0. I've dropped the XSL prefix from
the package title as you can now use the templating language of
your choice to output PDF.
This tool does not mimic your HTML layouts in
PDF format but allows you to define rich, unrestricted layouts
suitable for printing using FO.
PDF files are created as Umbraco templates
PDFs are created using your templating language of choice,
Razor, XSLT or your favourite.
Easily embed Fonts, Images and SVG.
PDF Creator is a commercial package.
New features in version 2:
No custom Macro required - just use standard Umbraco templates
to output FO.
Use Razor and other template languages.

I've been working on
Bill4U - a billing system based on Umbraco.
Bill4U is targeted at small businesses and freelancers who
generate a relatively small amount of invoices each month. It
allows you to quickly bill customers from the Umbraco dashboard,
