This week in PDF sees the release of a new PDF viewer program for smartphones, an update to absolutePDF's PDF generation library and Greiner Consulting Services' plug-in for linking external content resources.

Earlier today, absolutePDF released an update to its PDF generation library. An ActiveX COM DLL, absolutePDF-Creator Easy 1.3.5 adds the ability to import existing PDF pages for use as backgrounds and ships with plenty of VB and C++ code samples. Full information about the new release and a free 60-day trial version of the library are available from the absolutePDF Web site.
On the plug-in front, Greiner Consulting Services has released a brand-spanking-new Acrobat plug-in for associating other content files for download to PDF documents via link actions. It is integrated with Acrobat, and allows users to create such links using Acrobat's Link Tool. The product's user component is Reader-enabled, which allows the CopyFILE link action to be recognized and displays a dialog box offering the user the ability to select one files to be copied or downloaded.
