iText 2.0.6

  • Changes made by Paulo
    • Solved a problem with NameTree: in iText 2.0.5, it was possible to create unsorted PDF Name Trees.
    • Class ColumnText: it is now possible to have better control over the 'first line' behavior.
    • PDF417: removed the optional macro field segment count. Some readers can't process it.
    • Fonts: more properties can be extracted from fonts: sub/superscript size and position, underline/strikethrough thickness and position.
    • Extra check in PdfContentByte: very small font sizes can crash some viewers.
    • Fix: PdfReader in partial mode misbehaved in PdfStamper.
    • Fix: iText now scales the WMF font size if necessary.
    • Fix: an error was thrown if the /Annots array had a null element.
    • Fix: Cp437 must also output the control codes (<32).
    • Fix: underline or strikethrough fonts could leave a visible line in the wrong place when spacing before was applied.
    • Fix: Checkboxes should behave as Radioboxes specially concerning the Opt array
    • Performance: avoid the creation of new fonts.
    • Support for JPEG2000 images (.jp2 and .j2k)
    • Added support to set the button image with images coded in base64. This is particulary important for XFA forms where the image may be coded in the dataset.
  • Changes made by Bruno
    • All lines in a Cell (old Table class) were assumed to have equal heights. This isn't always the case. This problem was reported by Chad Loder on the mailing list.
    • A lot of RTF functionality was broken in iText 2.0.5. This is fixed in iText 2.0.6.
    • Some indentation bugs were fixed in iText 2.0.5; but by doing so a new indentation bug was introduced. The bug was reported on SourceForge #1797927 and has now been solved.
    • Extra null checks in Font and Phrase; changes to the copy constructor of class Phrase.
    • For what it's worth: I changed single quotes into double quotes in XmpWriter
  • Changes made by Xavier
    • Code cleanup in class Jpeg2000
