Support for more logging platforms in Docotic.Pdf 7.2


We have released Docotic.Pdf 7.2 on our site and on NuGet.

Starting from the new release, the library can automatically detect and attach to logging frameworks. NLog, Log4Net, Serilog and Loupe loggers are supported. You don’t need to do anything extra, if your solution uses NLog, for example. Docotic.Pdf will output its log messages into the configured loggers. We also added two new samples Logging with NLog and Logging with log4net to illustrate how it works.

We continue our efforts to get rid of System.Drawing and GDI+ dependencies in Docotic.Pdf completely. Starting from version 7.2, the library no longer uses System.Drawing and GDI+ when saving (extracting) images “as painted”. This also improves quality of the extracted images because there is no more unwanted image scaling. Previously, the images were scaled due to the difference in resolutions between PDF and GDI+ (72 vs. 96 dots per inch).

This release also contains bug fixes for processing of images and parsing of XMP metadata.
