It’s been quite a while since we’ve done one of these. A few years ago, we presented a PDF Days talk entitled “7 cases for the PDF support detectives” which detailed a variety of mysterious PDF issues that we’ve solved over the years.
14th February 2020... It’s a date which has been carved in the minds of our developers here at iText for several months now. And it’s not because it’s a day we want to spend with our loved ones at home. It’s because that’s the day the iText library, which we are working on daily, marks its 20th birthday: Feb 14, 2000 is the day when we released our first lines of code!
Now, twenty years on, we’re at iText Core version 7.1.10!
Introducing a new iText 7 add-on, pdfRender, which allows you to render PDFs as images. Powered by IDRsolutions, pdfRender integrates with iText 7 to enable the display of PDF content as easily as displaying an image.
We're pleased to announce iText 7.1.9, our latest (and last of 2019!) quarterly release.
This release includes further documentation and SVG improvements, as well as updated versions of the pdfHTML, pdfXFA and pdf2Data add-ons.
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.
