Releases

Release iText 5.5.8

We are now releasing iText 5.5.8 and we've reorganized the source code. The projects itextpdf, pdfa, xtra, and xmlworker, are now all in one place: itext/itextpdf.

Release iText 5.5.7

Release of version 5.5.7 for iText 5 Core  brings several improvements for tables, forms, digital signatures,  create ZUGFeRD invoices, and much more.

Release iText 5.5.6

For the release of version 5.5.6 of iText 5 Core, we have continued working on the CleanUp functionality in the xtra package. We now support redaction that involves lines and shapes.

Release iText 5.5.4

Release of iText 5.5.4 on December 17, with this release we are adding new features to XFA worker based on requirements of our customers.

Release iText 5.5.3

In the previous release, we focused on XML Worker parsing HTML and CSS. For this release, we focused mainly on XFA Worker. XFA is a closed source add-on written on top of iText.

Release iText 5.5.2

For the release o iText 5.5.2 we have put a lot of effort into: major improvements to the CSS parser. This is actually a complete rewrite of the CSS functionality, resulting in much better interpretation of CSS syntax. You'll find these changes in iText's XML Worker. The HTMLWorker class that was shipped with iText 5 Core was finally deprecated.

Release iText 5.5.1

For this release, we've invested in even more development of XFA Worker, including tagged PDF functionality. Offering the possibility to generate PDF/A and PDF/UA documents from XFA forms.

Release iText 5.5.0

We received plenty of feedback regarding the accessibility functionality that was introduced last year. The PDF/UA spec is relatively new and the ISO committee is still fixing a couple of issues that were discovered in the first version. The same goes for iText.

Release iText 5.4.4

When we released iText 5.4.3, we promised that we would continue working on PDF/A, more specifically: provide all the checks that ensure you the file you're creating is either PDF/A-2 or PDF/A-3, just the way we did with PDF/A-1. iText 5.4.4 brings interesting new functionality in the area of accessibility (PDF/UA), more specifically when forms are involved. The next release will again focus on archiving (PDF/A).

Release iText 5.4.3

We're launching the release of iText 5.4.3 and as promised, we've been working on PAdES-5 and PDF/A. We already supported signing XFA forms using XML-DSig, now we also have support for signing using XAdES (which is required to meet the PAdES-5 standard). For the moment, only BES is supported (EPES will follow).

Release iText 5.4.2

New Java PDF library release of version 5.4.2. The C# and the Android port will follow soon. So will XFA Worker. These are some of the important topics taken from the changelog.

Release iText 5.4.1

Almost two months have passed since 13th anniversary release of iText. We've spent these months on some projects for customers, on developing new business models (visiting different companies in the US) and on tying the loose ends that surfaced due to the major changes in 5.4.0. Let's take a look at the most important changes.

Release iText 5.4.0

Exactly 13 years after the first use of the name iText and the first official iText release, we're releasing iText 5.4.0.
