North Caulfield, Australia (PressExposure) February 17, 2009 -- Debenu, the company that created Benubird PDF Pro, the leading personal document manager for SOHO users, today announced the acquisition of SEDTech's PDF API, Quick PDF Library (formerly know as iSEDQuickPDF / QuickPDF).
"Quick PDF Library was first released in early 2001 by SEDTech and is one of the most popular libraries used for creating, managing, and rendering PDF files. We're extremely delighted to add this to our suite of products," stated Karl De Abrew, Debenu CEO. "Whilst development slowed considerably over the past few years, we're happy to say that it's now under new management. We've been feverishly working on a new and updated Quick PDF Library release 'behind-the-scenes' bringing version 5.11 to 7.12"
* Major changes from version 5.11 to version 7.12 include: * AES 128-bit encryption * PDF slideshow / presentations / page transitions * Renderer to support gradients * Import/header files for ActiveX and DLL in a variety of programming languages * Implementation of simple TrueType rasterizer * Embedded file grouping and links * Support for Japanese fonts * Improved image parsing * Noticable performance increase
"With later versions, we intend to focus on PDF/A (ISO 19005-1:2005), 3D support, tagged PDF and batch utility features," De Abrew added. "In short, using our extensive experience with PDF technology, we plan to build QuickPDF into the 'Swiss army knife' of PDF toolkits."
