    Release Notes: This release adds a "MaxiCode" class, to render UPS MaxiCodes (a type of 2-D barcode). Tiled TIFF images can now be loaded. A rare stack overflow condition when drawing arcs very close to 90 degrees was fixed. An equally rare concurrency error when filling out several forms in different threads was also fixed. This version now reads (even rarer) zero-length hex strings when reading PDFs and FDFs.

      Release Notes: Signature appearances are no longer opaque by default. The PKCS7SignatureHandler.sign() method is no longer final. Some cases of form names with a "." that weren't handled before are now handled. An obscure problem in 2.0.7 that caused some documents to inflate in size drastically has now been fixed. A tweak was made to positioning for right-aligned form fields to prevent occasional clipping. The italic and bold variants of StandardCJKFonts were fixed. Certain documents were incorrectly returning a null action for their bookmarks, but now is fixed.

        Release Notes: The inability to reset the dash pattern in a PDFStyle was fixed. Drawing dashed lines with a fill-color set no longer gives a "trace" line. PDFPage.setBox and PDFPage.getBox methods were added. Pre-rotated pages with annotations are now handled correctly. Fonts created with the "Private Character Editor" supplied with Windows XP are now handled.

          Release Notes: Support for PGM and PBM images has been added to the PDFImage class. 3 new barcodes have been added: PostNet (for US ZIP codes), the RoyalMail 4-state Customer Code (for UK postcodes), and the Deutschen Post Leit and Identcode variation of Interleaved 2/5 (for German postal codes). Certain types of PDF1.1 named action were causing problems. An issue where standard edition licenses failed when annotations are used has been fixed.

                Release Notes: A problem with importing FDFs and a problem where a "double image" could appear when editing a form field in Acrobat that has been created by the PDF library have been fixed. This release can read documents with corrupt named actions.
