Release Notes: Several fixes were made to XFA, in particular regarding field formatting. An improved algorithm for text extraction now gives better results for most documents. Identification of super and subscript digits from the text was added. The mapping from PDF font to OS font was changed from 1:1 to 1:many, which is required to correctly render characters from the more recent HKSCS supplements on Windows.
Release Notes: No change, but the release has been renumbered to 2.15 because the behavior of the PDF page list is, technically, an API change.
Release Notes: This release adds support for loading linearized documents to the viewer; if you want your custom features to take advantage of this, then they may need rewriting, but it should have no impact for most features. PDF/A-2b and PDF/A-3b support has been added to the OutputProfile class, and a few (very specific) issues with PDF/A-1b have been fixed. Support has been added for creating PDF portfolios.
Release Notes: A problem where the Map returned from PDF.getNamedActions() didn't fully implement the Map interface was fixed. ColorContent, ColorImage, GrayscaleContent, and GrayscaleImage were added to the OutputProfile class, for categorically determining if a PDF contains color or grayscale content. Column spacing during text extraction was modified slightly. Previously, the two columns would overlap by one character. Minor fixes were included for some specific damaged PDFs.
