Release Notes: This release verifies the API against Java 7 and fixes some Java 1.4 compatibility issues. JBIG2 classes from JPedal are now included and have been optimized. There's no longer any need to use "jbig2dec" or include the "jbig2.jar" in your classpath. There are speed improvements for text extraction and PDF creation. There are improvements to XFDF reading and writing. Rendering bitmap images with a Blend Mode is now working. PropertyChangeEvent support has been added to PDFPage and PDF classes.
