iText, the free/open source Java-PDF library, is hot! Book reviews about 'iText in Action' are appearing everywhere, and they are all very positive. This is of course a strong motivator to keep up the good work on iText.
In the past two months iText has undergone quite a metamorfosis. All the examples that are discussed in the book still work, but some obsolete classes, interfaces and methods were removed. Some classes have also undergone huge changes internally.
At the same time a lot of new functionality was added: certificate encryption of PDF files, portable collections (PDF 1.7), new printer preferences (PDF 1.7), support for GoToE (PDF 1.6), first line indent for paragraphs, and much more.
As a matter of fact, we provided a new tutorial page: http://itextdocs.lowagie.com/tutorial/itext2/
From this page, we'll link to new examples that explain how to work with the new functionality soon.
