Release early, release often. But what is often? If you look at the recent iText releases, you see there is a release a month.
This month we bring you iText1.3.5 with some interesting new functionality: it is now possible to create Tagged PDFs with iText. This is a first step towards implementing the PDF/A ISO standard.
There was also some work done on the HtmlWorker (to convert portions of HTML to PDF) and a new Event class was added to facilitate the positioning of form fields.
Two new plug-ins were added to the toolbox: one to reverse the order of the pages in a PDF; another one to remove 'launch' actions from a PDF that can form a possible security hazard.
There were also some bugfixes in PdfReader, RtfFont, PdfStamper and so on.
