This comparison feature will certainly help me in the development of upcoming versions the thirty PDFX-ready preflight profiles.
- pdfToolbox 9.4 introduces a number of internal changes to prepare support for the PDF 2.0 standard. PDF2.0 was published as a standard by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in July 2017.
However there are no profiles using the PDF 2.0 features included in the update. Such a profile can be downloaded from the Callas web site.
- When working on different versions of preflight profiles, it’s often difficult to find out what exactly has changed. pdfToolbox 9.4 contains a “compare profiles” feature that can be used to easily highlight differences between profiles.
- A new “Insert pages” fixup allows inserting new empty pages or duplicating existing pages. A new preflight condition allows identifying objects with specific dimensions (for example to give an error only for objects exceeding a certain width or height).
- The “Explore PDF” view has been improved to allow easier navigation through the internal code of a PDF document.
In the release notes one can find a detailed list of all new features and improvements.
