This week in PDF has seen an update to a developer component that allows developers to build PDF editing features into their applications, the release of another component that adds HTML-to-PDF conversion. Additionally, an update to an iPad PDF viewer adds PDF annotation functionality.
First up, Aspose has released a new version of its PDF editing developer component. Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET 4.6.0 both improves existing features and adds new functionality related to PDF to TIFF conversion. Key enhancements include support for: changing image color depth, ignoring blank pages while converting PDF to TIFF, setting margins or orientation (landscape or portrait) during PDF-to-TIFF conversion. The latest version also adds support for a new image format: EMF. For more information, visit the official Aspose website.
In other developer news, DuoDimension Software has announced the release of its component for converting HTML content into PDF. PDF Duo .NET is designed for use in ASP.NET (VB, C# etc.) and enables users to convert HTML represented as a File, Page of URL address, Stream or as a String. Developers can invoke the component in their own applications or website projects on base of ASP.NET. To find out more, check out the official vendor website.
Last but not least, Readdle has announced the immediate availability of ReaddleDocs for iPad 1.5.1, the latest version of its application for managing files and reading documents on the iPad. The new version allows users to highlight text inside PDF files, make notes, and save these changes, while retaining compatibility with desktop PDF readers.
