iText in Action 2E + iText 5.0.2

I'm revising the final manuscript of "iText in Action - 2nd Edition", written for Manning Publications Co . Normally, the final review by external reviewers should start next week. (Let me know if you want to be one of the external reviewers.)

The examples that come with the book contain new functionality, so it was time to make a new release: iText 5.0.2.

Chapter 15 of the book has several examples about parsing PDF. That means we've more or less finalized the API for text extracting. I've also written some experimental code to convert a Tagged PDF document into an XML file, to extract images from a PDF, and to find the text boundaries in an existing PDF.

Apart from that, iText 5.0.2 brings support for the popular two-dimensional barcodes QRCode, a new method to reset the number of columns in a PdfPTable, a new class to create visibility expressions for optional content, and so on.

Finally, there are always minor bug fixes, such as (yet another) rowspan fix for PdfPTable.
