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!
January 28 2020. Ghent, Belgium. iText, leading provider of open source PDF technology for Java and .NET (C#), and IDRsolutions, technology provider for PDF SDKs for Java, announce that they have entered into a strategic technology partnership. The collaboration will result in innovative product offerings and continued leadership in the PDF SDK space.
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 are excited to announce the general availability of iText DITO v. 1.2. This latest release of iText’s template engine contains several new features and optimizations of existing capabilities, all targeted towards the realization of iText DITO’s mission: To provide a high-convenience PDF generation product that combines WYSIWYG template design in the browser, with a powerful PDF generation engine built to handle enterprise-level requirements and volumes.
