I have released qpdf version 4.2.0. This is mainly a bug fix release
with a few small enhancements. The major thing here is a fix to a bug
that would result in the loss of compressible objects whose generation
numbers were greater than 0 when generating object streams. In
addressing this problem, I added some better API calls for handling
object ID and generation together as a QPDFObjGen, which should reduce
the likelihood of other people coding similar bugs.
Other changes include the addition of --show-npages to the qpdf
command-line tool, some improvements to the command-line parsing of the
--pages option, and several small enhancements to make qpdf able to
handle a wider range of broken input files. Full details can be found
