Keynote: PDF, from simple to powerful

Our Chief Strategy Officer Bruno Lowagie used the event to launch iText 7. iText 7 is of particular interest to the Indian market because one of its value add-ons supports correct retention and rendering of Devanagari, an alphabet family that is extensively used in Indic languages.
