PR: Glyph & Cog Announces New Version of Xpdf Tools
Version 3.0 of the PDF viewing, printing, and extraction software released

22 January 2004

San Jose, CA -- Glyph & Cog, LLC today announced the release of Version 3.0 of the Xpdf suite of PDF viewing, printing, and extraction software. This release features an all-new PDF rasterizer, providing improvements in both performance and image quality.

The XpdfViewer™ ActiveX control (OCX) adds PDF viewer functionality to application development environments such as Visual Basic or Delphi, as well as Internet Explorer. XpdfViewer 3.0 builds on the previous version with a new PDF rasterizer that is not only faster, but also features improved text and graphics rendering.

"If you need to add PDF display functionality to your custom application, XpdfViewer is the right choice," says Derek Noonburg, President of Glyph & Cog. "Developers who are looking for an easy-to-use, well-documented ActiveX control will love XpdfViewer," The 3.0 release also includes a new version of XpdfPrint™, which makes use of the new rasterizer to provide server and batch-mode PDF printing capabilities. XpdfPrint can print PDF files (or pages from PDF files), completely under program control -- including selection of printer, paper tray, and media size.

All of Glyph & Cog's software tools are standalone components, with no dependences or requirements for other installed software. End user and OEM licenses are available.

XpdfViewer and XpdfPrint are available now as ActiveX/COM components, as well as DLL versions. The Xpdf suite also includes PDF-to-image and PDF-to-text conversion tools.


About Glyph & Cog: Glyph & Cog develops software for manipulating electronic documents. The company was formed in 2002 to support and commercialize the Xpdf project. Glyph & Cog is dedicated to continuing the open source Xpdf project, as well as providing commercially licensed software.
