    Release Notes: The "fixed pitch" text extraction mode was added. "pdftops -paper match" was modified to handle PDF files with different-sized pages, so it will now select the matching paper size on a page-by-page basis. The ability for pdftoppm to write to stdout was added. The pdfdetach tool was added. 256-bit AES decryption was implemented. The t1lib section was commented out in the configure script, since t1lib has some potential security holes, and hasn't been updated in years. The font configuration xpdfrc commands were redesigned. The license was changed from GPLv2 to dual v2/v3 licensing.
