  •  15 Nov 2010 01:15

Release Notes: This version merely fixes a bug in the specification of one of the tests. The shell scripts themselves are unaffected.

  •  13 Nov 2010 22:58

Release Notes: The only change in this version is that two additional graphics file formats, JPEG and PNG, are now explicitly allowed as input.

  •  11 May 2010 14:45

Release Notes: This release makes just one minor feature enhancement: in the "pdfbook" script, the option "--booklet true" is now the default.

  •  25 Apr 2010 17:14

Release Notes: This version includes an enhancement of the "pdfbook" script to facilitate short-edge binding. The "--preamble" option of the "pdfjam" script is also enhanced, to concatenate multiple instances of that option in the call. Some minor errors in man pages are corrected.

Release Notes: This version includes various small enhancements and bugfixes. The script now allows JPEG format files to be specified as input. It is not known how widely that might work, so this feature should be regarded as experimental.

  •  20 Apr 2010 08:03

Release Notes: This release fixed a bug that caused problems with zsh as the executing shell, and a bug which caused incorrect representation of UTF-8 characters in "pdfinfo" data.

Release Notes: There are some minor bug fixes which affected portability and some small improvements to functionality. There are improvements to "--keepinfo" functionality, and to the treatment of file permissions. The initial skeleton of a suite of tests is also included in this release.

  •  13 Apr 2010 00:55

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in version 2.00 that seriously affected portability to certain shells.

  •  08 Apr 2010 13:52

    Release Notes: This is a major redesign. The work is now done by a new script, "pdfjam"; all of the other scripts in the package are simple convenience wrappers for "pdfjam". Portability and security issues are addressed better, and /bin/bash is no longer necessary. This new "pdfjam" provides many more of the options made available by the LaTeX "pdfpages" package. Page selection is more flexible. PDF file information can be preserved or altered. More output page sizes can now be specified, including user-defined sizes. Minor bugs are also fixed in this version. The Mac OS X droplets are unchanged.

    •  19 Jan 2009 22:27

    Release Notes: This release fixes some important security problems. The scripts now call for "/bin/bash" (rather than "/bin/sh") as the interpreter. Availability of "mktemp -d" is also now assumed. The sample Mac OS X droplets now look for "pdflatex" at (by default) "/usr/texbin/pdflatex", but this is still configurable.
