"Our goal with the version 8 release was to make working with Quick PDF Library even easier than it already is. This meant that several changes were made to the SDK's public API, as well as the security engine receiving a major overhaul. We're expecting our customers to be very happy with these changes." said Karl De Abrew, Debenu CEO "Of course we wanted to do more with version 8 than just improving what we already had, so we added support for AES-256-bit encryption, PDF/A creation and much more. We just know our customers will love this new version."
Customers who have either purchased version 7 of the library since June 1, 2011, or have a Premium Upgrade Protection subscription can get the upgrade for free. A full list of the changes made for this release can be found on the Quick PDF Library update page. To find out more about Quick PDF Library generally, check out www.QuickPDFLibrary.com.
Despite the numerous benefits, there can be potential issues with the conversion of paper documents into electronic archives. When scanning paper pages into PDF, it's possible to end up with the odd- and even-numbered pages in separate PDF files. It can be very time-consuming to collate them manually, but there is an easier way. Sean Stewart explains.
