Add RTL and bidirectional text to PDF with Docotic.Pdf 8.5

We have released Docotic.Pdf 8.5 and its add-ons. They are now available on our site and NuGet.

We improved support for RTL and bidirectional text in the new version. Last year the library got the ability to extract RTL and bidirectional text properly. In version 8.5, we added the ability to specify base direction when drawing right-to-left and bidirectional text on PdfCanvas.

There are also changes in the API for images. With the new version, you can access low-level image streams. It is now allowed to uncompress mask images and recompress them with Flate.

With Docotic.Pdf 8.5, it is possible to retrieve extended properties of a timestamp token embedded in a signature. And we also improved the verification of ECDSA signatures.

We fixed quite some bugs reported by our customers and prospects. Some of the areas affected are JPEG extraction and importing code, text extraction, decoding of CCITT images, and parsing of fonts.
