iText 7 Core is available via Maven on The Central repository. If you need all iText 7 modules, then you don't need to add the individual modules and you can just add this XML snippet in your pom.xml. Maven will then do all the heavy lifting for you and download the required modules from The Central Repository. Simply add iText 7 as a dependency to your pom.xml:
NOTE: We use "RELEASE" as the iText version in this installation, which will ensure you install the current release versions of the iText 7 modules. If your project requires a specific version of iText 7 to function correctly, ensure you replace this with your desired version number in your pom.xml.
Earlier versions of the iText PDF library were already able to render Chinese, Japanese and Korean glyphs in PDF documents, but to correctly display right-to-left scripts like Hebrew and Arabic, we needed the information provided by OpenType fonts to help with handling the complexities of all the world's writing systems. So, for iText 7 we went back to the drawing board to provide OpenType support for advanced font features in PDF documents.
We’re pleased to announce iText 7.1.8, our latest quarterly release. Despite the minor release number, we think it counts as a pretty significant update as in addition to various improvements and bug fixes in our kernel and layout modules, iText 7.1.8 adds support for XFDF, the XML Forms Data Format.
