PDF Association
The PDF Days Conference is quickly approaching, held in Berlin May 15-16. At the conference, the PDF Association will host talks about PDF Specification updates and reveal some seriously big news. Although, we don't know everything, we do know that the big reveal for this year's PDF Days will be BIG. The super secret project is code named "Camelot2”. Easily the most exciting (and radical!) development in PDF technology for years, Camelot2 marries core PDF capabilities to the flexibility of web technologies. The development of this technology is ongoing, and actively supported by many members of the PDF Association, including iText. The real name, purpose and status of “Camelot2” will be revealed in the initial Keynote session and subsequent dedicated track at PDF Days 2017
