Docotic.Pdf 4. Much improved rendering engine and more.

Hello!

I am very happy to announce that we’ve released Docotic.Pdf 4 on our site.

Seven months of active development were not in vain: the new major release brings some great improvements.

Docotic.Pdf 4 comes with new, much improved text rendering engine. With the new engine text gets drawn at the right positions with the right font. The new version of the library produces much more accurate outputs then the previous version did. Let me assure you: you will see the difference.

Text rendering and text extraction are often go hand in hand. With Docotic.Pdf that’s not different. New version of the library extracts text more precisely and can provide you more information about text in a PDF document. You can know the font, the pen and brush color and the rendering mode used to draw any chunk of text. There are new properties in the PdfTextData class for that.

The new version adds support for JPEG 2000 images. The library can add, extract and draw them. Other imaging related areas also received some of our attention. Some bugs related to processing of JPEGs were fixed. Extraction of images (including masked ones and those in the CMYK color space) was improved.

As with every release of the library, we also fixed processing of some PDFs which not quite meet the standard and documents with unusual internal structure.
