PDF Clown 0.0.8 Alpha released

PDF Clown is a Java 6 and C#/.NET 3.5 library for simple yet rigorous manipulation of PDF files.

This release is focused on text extraction [1] support: a specialized tool provides, along with plain-text extraction, advanced functionalities such as full graphic state of extracted text (font, font size, text color, text rendering mode, text position...), text filtering by area, text grouping and sorting. Lots of minor improvements have been applied too.

Java version migrated to Java 6 platform, while C#/.NET version migrated to .NET 3.5.

LGPL 3 is the new license applied to the project.

Last but not least: the distribution's directory structure has been revised to simplify its navigation and ease its integration with common IDEs (Eclipse- and Visual Studio-compatible).
