iText, your favorite JAVA-PDF Library, will be the project of the month of the Software Developer's Journal in one of the next issues (http://www.sdjournal.org/en/).
The new release was build to be on the CD that accompanies the magazine. Of course, there is also a lot of new stuff in the 1.3.6 version.
You can now define a repeating footer for a PdfPTable. Lists and combo fields can now be set in the AcroFields object. There was some serious debugging activity in the area of class Table (thank you Karsten Klein!). The toolbox looks a little bit different now. There's a new tool that allows you to inspect the internals of a PDF file.
Just check the long changelog list on the history page:
and you'll understand it was high time we made a new release.
