From database and messaging to imposition now. Quite Software has announced the May 1 release of a standalone imposition product. The new application, to be called Quite Hot Imposing, will enable OEMs, system integrators, and independent vendors to create customized workflow's using either Quite Hot Imposing hot folders or command-line tools. Built on the foundations of Quite's established Quite Imposing Plus plug-in and the Adobe Acrobat PDF Library, the new application allows for the integration of imposition functions into larger-scale workflows. Quite Hot Imposing will be available for both Windows and Macintosh systems, and current users of Quite Imposing Plus will be able to export their current setups (XML) into the standalone product. More information can be found at Quite.com.
Finally, Crionics, Inc. has released the latest version of its suite of PDF products. jPDF Suite 7.01 is a software collection comprised of six tools spanning creation and conversion to digital signatures. The new version offers full support for Java 6, Acrobat 8 and Windows Vista, improved security and font rendering support and can generate PDF documents from XML Form Architecture (XFA).
