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.

Our own Director of Product Management, Raf Hens, gave a talk on accessibility, on...
Last week we spent some time at DevoxxBE. Thanks for such a great show. We had fun with the iText minifigs and appreciated all of the great questions that were discussed in our booth. There are so many great ways that devs are using iText, and we love hearing about it. It was also a big event for two of our devs, Benoit and Michael, who filled an ENTIRE ROOM with their talk "Oops, I broke my API". If you want to join the fanclub, you can watch it from the comfort of your own home , or at the Hackerspace conference “Newline...

We left our hearts in San Francisco. After a great week of sessions, exhibits, meetings, events and fun, the iText team is heading home from JavaOne. Our very own Bruno Lowagie and Raf Hens had a great talk "Oops I broke my API" about the reasons to break backwards compatibility, and when it makes sense. We had lots of great conversations in our booth with current users and new friends alike. Our minifigs had a great time making new friends, and heading off to their new homes...

We are back from our trip to Austin, TX for the OSCON Conference. It was a fun, rainy week where we needed to find ways to keep the minifigs dry! There were lots of great things to see and learn at OSCON this year, from the plush beanbag chairs to the informative sessions, we were glad to be a part of the excitement. The show was a great chance to get back to our open source roots. After releasing the first open source PDF library, we moved to the AGPL model in 2009. AGPL means that you can use our library for free- if you release your project code for others to use as well. Learn more about...

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...
