With the initial discussions having started in 2012, PDFBox 2.0.0 has been in the works for quite some time and now it is in its final stages! Interested parties are invited to provide feedback on the just released PDFBox 2.0.0-RC1 Release Candidate rather sooner than later. A Migration Guide gives users coming from PDFBox 1.8 or earlier an overview about things to look at when switching over. More details will become available in due course.
Paper is still with us: “Digital books accounted last year for around 20 percent of the market, roughly the same as they did a few years ago.”
2 PDF-packed days; 3 tracks, 37 sessions, and two great keynote speakers: Adobe’s Phil Ydens and Silent Circle’s Jon Callas!
The 0.4 release includes the first complete (in principle) PDF/A-1b validation profile, and while unverified, tests well against the internal corpora.
Release 0.2 of veraPDF does not yet perform PDF/A validation, but as a proof-of-concept it demonstrates the approach selected for project.
