  • XMP Management - Toolkit now provides a system of calls to directly manage XMP metadata. Use XMP metadata to tag your PDFs for categorizing; searching and retrieving; and distributing your documents. Includes support for adding Dublin Core properties.
  • PDF Compression - Make compact and efficient documents. The SetPDFCompression method utilizes object streams and cross reference streams to reduce the size of your output PDF.
  • GetTextHeight method - When placing text within a PDF document, developers need to know the size of the text block. The existing GetTextWidth currently returns the width of the text block, the new GetTextHeight method also provides the height.
  • ClearPDFSecurity - After using SetOutputSecurity method to encrypt a file, you may need to duplicate the file without the security settings. ClearPDFSecurity strips out any passwords and permissions configured in the API settings.
  • AES 256 Encryption - The new SetPDFSecurity and EncryptPDF methods provide the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 security option, which is the accepted standard algorithm of the U.S. and Canadian governments.
