In 2006-2007, Actuate Corporation asked Bruno Lowagie to perform an IP review. The result of this research was that the Eclipse Foundation accepted iText for distribution with Eclipse Europa, listing the authors of the software who were later invited to sign a Contributor License Agreement. Actuate and Eclipse use a special 1.5.x branch of iText (not listed here). iText 1.5.0 and 2.0.0 were the first versions of iText of which the IP was checked for 100%. Starting with iText 2.1, there's a strict policy for contributors and contributions.

The major changes that were introduced are code clean ups that should make it easier for other developers to join the project. A major code reorganization was gradually introduced. The core iText code was separated from the RTF package. The Swing GUI known as the iText toolbox was temporarily moved to a separate project. A new tool, called RUPS, was introduced.
