Summer Release of Java PDF Component with 4k Support, Annotation Unicode & Page Labels

This Version adds Annotation Unicode & Rich Text Support

This summer release of Qoppa’s Java PDF Component suite (v2017R1) adds 4k high resolution display support and tons of improvements to the PDF annotation feature.

Qoppa’s PDF components user interface was revised to automatically scale depending on the user screen resolution, and to use vector icons, allowing applications that integrate our PDF viewing and annotating components, to function well on any monitors, including 4k HiDPI display monitors.

Text annotations were greatly enhanced with rich text and Unicode support as well as font sub-setting, giving greater flexibility for users to format text using various styles or use multi language character sets, including Chinese, Japanese or Korean.

Page labels, which are distinct page names different from standard page numbers, and might contain a prefix and various numbering styles (such as Roman numerals), are now well handled in our PDF components.

As usual, the new version also includes many parsing and rendering improvements, making it possible for Qoppa’s PDF engine to open and work with an even greater number of invalid or incorrectly formatted PDF documents.

Qoppa’s v2017R1 PDF component suite is compatible with Java 1.6, Java 1.7 and Java 1.8.

Summer Release of Java PDF Library with Optimizer Audit, PadES Signatures, Page Resize

This version adds a Page Resize function.

v2017R1 summer release of Qoppa’s Java PDF library suite adds improvements to PDF manipulation, PDF optimizer, electronic signatures and preflight features.

Qoppa’s advanced Java PDF Optimizer Library reduces significantly the file size of PDF documents by removing unused objects, compressing images and streams. The optimizer engine was improved with a PDF audit feature, that analyzes the sizes of all the different objects contained in a PDF document, and with an optimizer result report that outputs a log of all optimization functions performed. Object streams in a PDF document can be compressed allowing to shrink file size even more.

A new public API was added to Qoppa’s Manipulation Library to easily Resize PDF Pages  programmatically, offering advanced options to set the new paper size and to position, scale and rotate the original page in the new page.

The PDF OCR function was enhanced to allow deskewing scanned images before performing OCR as well as discarding any invisible text which might have been added in previous OCR runs.

Qoppa’s PDF signing technology was enhanced to support PadES digital signatures introduced in the latest PDF 2.0 specifications. These signatures are compliant with the European eIDAS regulation.

Additional PDF/A validation profiles (PDF/A-1a and PDF/A-2u) were added to jPDFPreflight, Qoppa’s PDF/A validation conversion library. In addition to standard PDF fonts, system fonts can also be embedded during PDF/A conversion.

Qoppa’s v2017R1 PDF library suite is compatible with Java 1.6, Java 1.7 and Java 1.8.
