PDFRead is a tool for converting PDF and DJVU documents for reading on eBook devices. It does this by creating an image out of each page, enhancing the image, and then collating the images in a device-specific format.

    Release Notes: This release add a "landscape-half" mode which splits a page into two even halves, automatically appends the proper file extension if the output document does not have it, removes imagemagick and uses pngnq for color reduction, fixes the problems which occurred when the PDF had an incorrect TOC referring to an invalid page, and adds the option --no-toc to disable TOC generation.

      Release Notes: The Windows GUI was revamped. Support was added for TIFF and a list of page images for input. Unpaper support was added for image cleanup. Extremely agressive whitespace detection was added, even in the middle of the page text. An edge-enhancement filter was added, similiar to rbmake and RasterFarian. All processing stages are allowed to be selectively disabled. A page range may be specified for conversion. An optional step to optimize generated PNG images via OptiPNG was added.

        Release Notes: DJVU input support was added. Custom options may be specified in the Windows GUI. Mac OS X support fixes were made. Tweaks were made in the EB-1150 and REB-1200 profile. A page is not split if the generated image's width or height is less than the device parameters, since this caused too many blank pages to be created.
