Feature Release
PDFlib 8.0.3 released
A PDF merge example in PDFlib.

PDFlib is a component that allows you to programmatically create PDF files from within your own server-side or client-side software. PDFlib doesn't make use of third-party software for generating PDFs, nor does it require any other tools. It offers a variety of new and improved functions, including a new table formatter, PDF/A output for longtime archiving, AES encryption, integrated pCOS analyzing tools, a repair and optimization mode for input PDFs, and numerous other new features. PDFlib+PDI includes all PDFlib functions, plus the PDF Import Library (PDI) for including existing PDF pages in the generated output and PDFlib Personalization Server (PPS) includes PDFlib+PDI, plus additional functions for automatically filling PDFlib blocks. PPS also includes the PDFlib Block plugin for creating blocks interactively. PDFlib is available for all major operating environments and development environments.

The following editions are available:

Updates in 8.0.3

  • Support for generating barcode fields (barcode fields don't work with Adobe Reader, but require Acrobat Professional)
  • Support for 3D models in the PRC format (in addition to U3D)
  • Adjust the size of imported PDF pages to work around problems with pages which contain content outside of all page boxes
  • The PDFlib Block plugin included with PDFlib Personalization Server (PPS) has been updated to version 4.3. It includes a redesigned user interface and offers Acrobat X compatibility on Windows and Mac OS X. The Japanese user interface is now also supported on the Mac.
