PDFOne (for Java) Version 5 Release

Greetings from Gnostice.

PDFOne (for Java) Version 5 Released

We are very happy to announce the release of PDFOne Version 5.

Highlights of this release include:

  • Native Java font engine
  • Digital signing

In this release, we have replaced the non-Java FreeType library with our own 100% Java font engine XtremeFontEngine (for Java). As a result, PDFOne can render PDF text faster than it did earlier.

This change also makes PDFOne a 100% pure Java component suite. You can now use PDFOne components in all Java environments without all the hassle caused by non-Java dependencies.
