When we released iText 5.4.3 a month and a half ago, 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.

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: The previous release was more or less the PDF/UA-release, introducing a better way to create and reuse structured PDFs aka Tagged PDF. In this release, we've added the support for extra attributes and we fixed some minor problems. We've introduced plenty of new ways to...
