Debenu acquires PDF developer library & PDF SDK

February 05, 2009


Debenu, the company behind personal document management package Benubird Pro, today announced its acquisition of SEDTech's PDF developer library & PDF SDK.

"Quick PDF Library (QuickPDF) was first released in early 2001 by SEDTech and is one of the most popular pdf developer libraries used for creating, managing, and rendering PDF files. We're extremely delighted to add this to our suite of products," stated Karl De Abrew, Debenu CEO. "Whilst development slowed considerably over the past few years, we're happy to say that it's now under new management. We've been feverishly working on a new and updated QuickPDF release 'behind-the-scenes' bringing version 5.11 to 7.12."

Features added in the new version include support for AES 128-bit encryption, PDF slideshows, Japanese fonts, among others, along with a significant improvement in performance. According to De Abrew, the development of subsequent versions would focus on PDF/A, 3D support, tagged PDF and batch utility features.

"In short, using our extensive experience with PDF technology, we plan to build Quick PDF Library into the 'Swiss army knife' of PDF toolkits," De Abrew concluded.

Customers who purchase the existing version 5.11 after Feb 3, 2009, will receive a free upgrade to version 7.12 when it is released in late-Q1 this year. For more information on the product, check out the PDF SDK at the official Quick PDF Library website.
