If you compare the changelogs for iText 5.5.6 with previous change log entries (for instance the one for iText 5.5.5 ), you immediately notice that we're using a completely different style. We have successfully moved from svn on SourceForge as our main code repository to git on a private GitLab server.

XFA is a closed source add-on written on top of iText. We've made the JavaScript interpretation more flexible, fixed page breaking mechanisms and issues with tables, and so on... All of these changes resulted from support tickets posted by customers. This doesn't mean we didn't do any work on the other iText products: iText: we've solved some problems when merging PDFs...
