PDFTron's 9th release is perhaps our most significant yet. It adds several, utterly new capabilities to the core PDFTron SDK, at the center of the PDFTron platform powering all our SDKs, including our flagship product, WebViewer, and our comprehensive mobile, desktop, and server-side SDKs.
Adding to our cross-platform core, we naturally need to plan and rigorously test each new feature. As a result, the release cycle is longer than the monthly cadence for our other platform-specific SDKs.
But now that v9 is officially here, you can see firsthand and experiment with all the latest core additions. Visit our unified download center to get started.
You can also check out changelogs for platform-specific overviews of what's new and improved with v9. Here is what’s brand new for Windows and Linux:
- Advanced Imaging Module, supporting the DICOM image format and many others.
- Flexible and powerful document generation using Office templates. Place unlimited amounts of content with full reflow while retaining all document styles.
- Added PDF2Word Module that enables conversion from PDF to Word format (using Convert.ToWord).
- Added PDFDoc.AppendTextDiff -- generates PDF content representing the text differences between two different pages or documents.
- And more
Lastly, before we dive into our feature round-up, we need to give credit where it's due -- to our developers. Not only for new functionality! They've been hard at work fine-tuning the conversion and rendering quality for v9 as well, so we can continue to give you the best performance, stability, and user experience.
