iText 5.3.4 — XML Worker 1.2.1 (November 2, 2012)

iText 5.3.4

  • Changes made by Paulo Soares
    • The signature date when invoking getSignDate() will now be the timestamp date (if available).
    • Appended xref streams could hide new objects, resulting in errors parsing an existing PDF. When trying to retrieve an existing object, iText returned null instead of the object.
  • Changes made by Kevin Day
    • Added low-level filtering hook to LocationTextExtractionStrategy.
  • Changes made by Alexander Chingarev
    • Bugfix in OCSPVerifier (a typo was causing false negatives)
    • Preparing better support for creating tagged PDF using high-level objects (work in progress; DO NOT USE UNTIL FINISHED)
  • Changes made by Denis Koleda
    • Concatenation of tagged PDFs: PdfCopy now also concatenates the structured tree (using a new class named PdfStructTreeController).
    • Introduced the concept of TABSPACE in the Chunk class.
    • Preparing better support for creating tagged PDF using high-level objects (work in progress; DO NOT USE UNTIL FINISHED); added IPdfStructureElement.
  • Changes made by Eugene Markovskyi
    • Avoiding NullPointerException in ColumnText.
    • Fixing NoSuchElementException in ColumnText.
  • Changes made by Bruno
    • Added extra methods to PdfAStamper to allow people to sign PDF/A files.
    • Added support for 8 bit images that are compressed using TIFF predictor 2 (suggestion by Paul aka apkeeley on SourceForge).
      There were some errors in the patch, but Bruno fixed them.
    • Added a getRotation() method to PdfImportedPage so that you can ask the page if it's rotated or not.
    • Fixed a header problem adding a table which spans multiple pages using table.setComplete(false);. Bug reported by Mark Smith on the mailing list (2012-10-31).
      The problem occurred when the last row added before calling document.add(table) was the last row in a page. Fix needs more testing.
    • Digital signatures:
      • CrlClientOnline cached CRL URLs. There are situations where you don't want that.
      • LtvVerification: added logging information, and introduced a class VerificationException
      • Wrote a class named LtvVerifier along with classes to verify Certificates against a keystore, CRLs, and OCSP responses:
        CertificateVerifier is the superclass of RootStoreVerifier, OCSPVerifier and CRLVerifier.
        These classes can be used to create a list of VerificationOK objects.
      • CertificateVerification: extra method that doesn't check any CRLs.
