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!
