PDFCreator

We are proud to release PDFCreator 1.3.0 to the public today. In this release, much has changed. We have replaced the RedMon DLL with own code, which no longer requires workarounds due to the Windows Vista / Windows 7 UAC safety features. It also removes the requirement to the AFPL in our package. As this changed some fundamental parts, we were reworking big parts of PDFCreator and needed much testing.

We know that having a MSI setup is vital for many people out there having to install PDFCreator on a large number of machines. For all of you there are good news, as we are doing quite some progress with the MSI development. After having some problems with our installer package (InstallAware), we now get quite used to it and found ways to bypass its limitations.

Of course it is hard to tell when exactly the MSI will be ready, but I am confident that this will happen soon. If thing go well, it could be that we have a first version ready for testing in January.

We are happy to publish the minor release PDFCreator 1.2.3 today. It includes an updated Ghostscript, extended versions of Images2PDF and the pdfforge.dll and some minor fixes.

We are happy to publish the maintenance release PDFCreator 1.2.2 today. This version basically adds more translations to the setup. The pdfforge.dll also now has support for TIFF files with multiple pages.

We are happy to release the maintenance version PDFCreator 1.2.1 today. We have greatly improved the uninstaller. Future updates will not detele the profile/printer mapping during the update.

We have also included a new Tool: Images2PDF. It allows you to quickly convert a list of images into a PDF file. Make sure to test it after the update.

We are happy to announce that PDFCreator 1.2.0 supports 24 29 languages now.

Today we are happy to announce PDFCreator 1.2.0. This version fixes a bug with printing from processes with lower priority like Google Chrome or Adobe Reader X. PDFCreator now also supports transparent PNG files.

According to our new versioning scheme we have increased the minor version number as there are new features and the translations needed to be updated.

We are happy to announce PDFCreator 1.1.0 today. According to our new versioning scheme, it is the first release after PDFCreator 1.0.0 which adds new features. Among them is the embedded Ghostscript 9.0 which improves the TrueType font support. We have also added 128 Bit AES encryption and improved the setup to be run when PDFCreator is already installed to make the update easier.

The new TrueType font system also fixes spacing problems in some fonts including the Arial-Degree-Bug which caused the degree symbol to flow into following characters.

Today we have released PDFCreator 1.0.2. This version returns to the older Ghostscript 8.70 as the new version had problem with making text searcheable. We have also added some languages and have fixed a small bug of our own.
