Chicago, IL, May 23, 2016 – Datalogics, the premier source for Adobe PDF and eBook technologies, announces the release of the Adobe PDF Library SDK (PDFL) 15. The Adobe PDF Library SDK is a class-leading PDF library that contains a powerful set of native C/C++ APIs with interfaces for .NET and Java. Built with the same core technology that Adobe uses to build Adobe Acrobat, PDFL offers a multitude of functionalities.

Version 15 of the Adobe PDF Library continues to deliver top-tier PDF capabilities that are native to the Adobe Creative Cloud product suite. This SDK can be used to create, edit, assemble, and print PDFs. Additional functionality includes extracting text, metadata, images, and graphics, adding watermarks and annotations, and much more. In addition to updating these functionalities, version 15 of the Adobe PDF Library also includes PDF to PDF/X conversion for graphics-arts and prepress applications and workflows.

“Application developers around the world turn to the Adobe PDF Library to bring the highest and fullest level of PDF ecosystem capabilities into their projects,” said Vel Genov, PDFL Product Manager, Datalogics. “Continuing to enable developers to create their applications with the same core technology that Adobe uses is essential. We’re excited to bring to market a new version, built on the Adobe Acrobat DC code base, allowing for solutions that are interoperable with Adobe Creative Cloud.”
