FIPS compliance, new annotation properties and a lot of bug fixes in Docotic.Pdf 5.10


We have released Docotic.Pdf 5.10 on NuGet and on our site.

In this release we changed the library to be as much FIPS-compliant as possible. In fact, this is the first release you can actually use in FIPS mode. When running on a machine with FIPS mode enabled, the library can not use older (non-FIPS compliant) algorithms. It means it can not encrypt or decrypt documents with RC4 algorithm. But other functions like drawing or text extraction will work just fine.

Version 5.10 brings a lot of new properties for annotation classes. We extended PdfCaretAnnotation, PdfEllipseAnnotation, PdfFreeTextAnnotation, PdfFileAttachmentAnnotation, PdfInkAnnotation, PdfLineAnnotation, PdfPolygonAnnotation, PdfPolylineAnnotation, PdfPopupAnnotation, PdfRectangleAnnotation, PdfSoundAnnotation, PdfStampAnnotation, PdfTextMarkupAnnotation, and PdfTextAnnotation. And we added one property to the base PdfWidget class, too.

As usual, we increased speed of PDF drawing. And we improved support for PDFs with broken or incorrect structure. We also added new sample codes that show how to OCR PDF documents.

This release also contains a lot of bug fixes. The fixes cover different areas like drawing, text extraction, parsing, editing of annotations and controls, and some other areas, too.
