Although it's iText's birthday, we are giving away presents left and right, which include new releases of Core, pdf2Data, pdfCalligraph, pdfHTML, pdfSweep, pdfXFA and RUPS (oof, I really had to take a breather there. It's a lot of goodies!) Head on down to the Release Notes to get the details.

    Release notes

    Lots of goodies going around! In no particular order:

    • Core now has some improved memory usage, specifically if you are reading big PDF files (check out PdfReader#SetMemorySavingMode(true)), more robust PDF update mechanisms, a better PDF/A document experience, some dependency updates and <marker> support for SVG;
    • pdf2Data has even better table boundary detection;
    • pdfCalligraph has much improved Thai and Gujarati language scripts' support;
    • pdfHTML now supports the lang attribute. This will help with the creation of PDF/UA compliant documents; 
    • pdfSweep had a bug which would remove /ColorSpace when redaction would partially affect an image;
    • pdfXFA has much better dynamic page numbering handling.


    Also, a couple of points mostly of interest for our commercial customers:

    • It is now required that the License Key Volume library is loaded if you are a Volume customer;
    • Proxy environment variables will be honored for Volume reporting;
    • If your license expires during runtime, it will revert back to AGPL mode.
