iText 5.5.2 is now available

Although the changelog may seem relatively short, there's one line in specific we've put a lot of effort into: Major improvements to the CSS parser.
This is actually a complete rewrite of the CSS functionality, resulting in much better interpretation of CSS syntax.
You'll find these changes in iText's XML Worker. The HTMLWorker class that was shipped with iText core was finally deprecated.

Release of iTextSharp 5.5.0

The new functionality added to iText in the iText 5.4.x versions has been very popular. Thanks to this popularity, we have received a good number of bug reports. We have fixed a number of accessibility issues and we have fixed a couple of problems with the new PdfCopy features.
You will also want to check out the new features that were added to iText RUPS. It is now possible to tweak a PDF by changing entries in dictionaries. In future versions, we will add some more functionality that allows you to update an existing PDF.... read more

New release 5.4.5 completes support for PDF/A

In our new release of iText 5.4.5, we have completed support for PDF/A, more specifically PDF/A-2 and PDF/A-3. XAdES-EPES support has also been added. At the same time, some other PDF/UA-related issues were fixed, also in iText RUPS, our tool to look inside a PDF.

Other improvements include the parsing functionality and an extra digital signatures feature that allows you to add information about the application that signed the PDF to the signature dictionary.... read more

iTextSharp 5.4.4

iText 5.4.4 introduces functionality that was long awaited: PdfCopy is finally able to merge AcroForm-based interactive PDFs. This is a huge step forward for people who want to merge accessible forms, preserving the accessibility.
At the same time, we deprecated the PdfCopyFields class. As opposed to PdfCopy, this class allowed you to merge forms, but this didn't result in a tagged PDF: all structure was lost.
As always, we've been fixing a number of bugs, or rather: we've improved iText so that (1) it now deals with some image types that previously weren't supported, and (2) when confronted with an invalid PDF, we try throwing a meaningful error instead of an ordinary NullPointerException.... read more
