PDF Day Australia Image
Some of the iText team was part of the first PDF Day event in Australia. Besides enjoying our time down under, we were really impressed with the quality of the attendees and the event organization by the PDF Association. We and our partner MDS gave the event three thumbs up.

Today, OSCON (Open Source Convention) London 2016 has started, and iText is there! You can find us at booth #212 and drop by for a quick chat.

We'll be on hand at OSCON to answer your questions about iText or discuss further developments with and within the open source community. Also, get to know our army of Lego minifigs...
iText founder and Chief Strategy Officer Bruno Lowagie attended the European Business Awards gala in Milan, Italy on behalf of the company last week (June 17).

Last week, the ISO committee devoted to PDF standards convened at iText's global HQ in Ghent, Belgium. The delegation took the opportunity to explore iText's brand-new offices, which offer a clear view over the city skyline, and then later went to tour the city itself, visiting various landmarks as well as a construction site generally not open to the public. The site in question is a renovation project for a canal area district that used to include a now-defunct circus and a gym, and will be reconverted to a library and a residential area with waterfront apartments.
At GIDS 2016 , we have now just demonstrated one of iText 7's more powerful features: the pdfCalligraph add-on. Developer Benoit Lagae and CSO Bruno Lowagie demonstrated that it is now possible to include full support for the Devanagari and Tamil scripts in an automatic PDF process. Up until now, this has been a struggle for most PDF tools because of the many ligatures these scripts need, resulting in flawed lines and awkward character transitions. iText 7 eliminates this...
