Today a new release of iText, a free/open source Java-PDF library, was published on SourceForge: iText 2.0.2.
This release mainly brings bugfixes and ameliorations; for instance: all source files are now in ASCII (to avoid encoding problems while compiling the code on different systems).
New features are support for DataMatrix barcodes and some convenience methods that makes PDF document manipulation and inspection easier for tool builders (iText is a PDF engine, not an end-user tool).
New documentation was added to the iText Wiki: http://www.lowagie.com/itextwiki/ and if you want to hear Bruno and Paulo, the core developers of iText, talk about the examples on the Wiki, you can have a look at their JavaPolis presentation: http://itext.ugent.be/articles/press/jp_talk.php
