  • Signatureblock has now three available positions:
    • extra page at the end of the document,

    • on the last page.
  • You can specify the position on the options page (only in metric for the moment).
  • Java 1.7 is used
  • GTK Layout under Linux is used

Sorry, but I think I was to quick with my release yesterday.
In this release I fixed the following:
- Bug in Commandline Mode (Exception with commandline options)
- Mac OSX package not working

In addition to the bug fix, I inserted a shell script and an install program for the OSX Release!

New Version 1.6 of PortableSigner

There's a new release of PortableSigner 1.6.

PortableSigner is a signing (with X.509 certificates) program for PDF files. It's plattform independent and runs (tested) under Windows (2000, XP, ...), Linux and Mac OS X.


The program is under GNU-LGPL

New Features:
- Preview buttons
- polish localization
- In commandline mode it is possible to sign encrypted documents
- In commandline mode it is possible to work with a password file
- The document has not to be finalized. With this option it is possible to sign multiple times. Only the last signer has to finalize the document.
- The localization method for the signature block has been altered. So it's easier to add new languages (see Translation.txt).
- There's the possibility to make an "intranet" build for easier deployment in intranets (see HowTo-InternalUse.txt).
- The signature block is now in conformance with the Austrina e-government rules.... read more

New release 1.3.72

I've tried to integrate native keystores (Windows and Mac OS x) in PortableSigner. I failed miserably. Both keystore bindings are not working correct. The code is partially in the project, but disabled!

I've cleaned up the code a little bit, upgraded both bouncycastle (now 137) and itext (now 2.05).

The program is now tested with java 1.6 under windows and mac os x.
