The iText 1.4.1 release is finally there!
Because of all my work on the book 'iText in Action' it took me longer than usual to prepare a new release. Also there is very little new functionality, but I know that you have all been waiting for the numerous bug fixes: better memory management for PdfCopy, Table bug fixes, better support for reading 'bad' TIFF files, and so on.
If all goes well, the book on iText will be out in the fall of 2006. I hope I'll have more time to add new functionality soon.
