This week in PDF: Forms, (standards) bodies and Miami heat

January 18, 2006


Welcome to the first edition of "This week in PDF," a new weekly column designed to give a quick overview of major developments in and around the PDF space. This week sees a new release of Jaws PDF Creator 4.0 for the Mac, while the Ghent PDF Workgroup takes center stage in Miami and an online HTML form processor adds PDF support.

Version 4.0 of Global Graphics' Jaws PDF Creator software allows users to create PDF 1.5 documents and offers improved print and prepress support, integrating the Ghent PDF Workgroup Version 2 and 3 profiles. Speaking of the Ghent PDF Workgroup (GWG for short), that standards body is set to step into the spotlight at next month's PDF-FORUM for Print Production, one of several conferences co-located with the Graphics of the Americas trade show in Miami, Florida. The GWG has signed on as a partner in the PDF-FORUM, with several members scheduled to speak during conference and tutorial sessions.

In other news, online forms processor Formdesk now supports PDF output, allowing form owners users to send PDF confirmation documents to users via email, allowing for reliable printing and archival.
