Spring is in the air in many places, and, thankfully, COVID-19 hasn’t been able to hold back the iText development team. On the contrary, even - we’ve been going ahead full steam, and, as a result, the iText 7.1.11 release brings many updates and improvements to the entire Suite!

Updates to iText 7 Core and its add-ons 

Updates to iText 7 Core include more robust PNG handling, better handling of form fields, improved table splitting and other improvements.

iText pdfRender: now available for .NET and other platforms

pdfRender is our latest addition to the iText Suite, launched only this January. As we’ve introduced a CLI (Command Line Interface) version with this release, .NET developers and others will now also be able to render images from PDFs.

iText pdfHTML: new features and new major version (3.x) 

Substantial updates to one of our most popular add-ons, including:

  • Line height property support
  • Added control over widow/orphan content
  • Improved line height calculation differences between browsers and PDF rendering
  • Better creation of outlines

Additional changes 

  • iText pdfXFA – can now better handle lists in rich text fields,
  • iText pdfCalligraph – better support for Arabic and Khmer scripts
  • iText pdf2Data – more stable data extraction in cases of non-critical errors in PDF syntax.

Check the release notes for the full details.

Licensing: remote and local volume count reporting 

To make volume reporting more flexible, “Volume Subscription” license holders now have two options: either they can log their volume remotely, or they can use iText’s implementation of a local counter. Remote reporting is still the most convenient way, but users now have more options when choosing how they report their volume.
