2.0.0 beta (basic and enhanced) released!

Hi everybody,
I finally released the new versions of the branch 2. There are a lot of changes (fixes and improvements), take a look at the provided changelog to find out what’s changed. It’s still a beta release but everything should work and I can now focus on the thumbnails generation that is working but still a bit slow and a memory eater.

Translation template for the 2.0.0-beta

Hi everybody,
I uploaded the new translation template for the upcoming 2.0.0-beta. The new version will be released in about two weeks so you have about 7-10 days to update your preferred translation here.

New 2.0.0 alpha version out

Hi everybody,
I just released the first alpha test version of the branch 2 (both basic and enhanced). With this version you’ll find the two new visual plugins that will let you visually reorder pages of a PDF file, or visually compose a document by merging pages taken from other documents. All the visual things are based on the JPodRenderer library. It’s a test version and load/save environment functions don’t work yet but everything else should work. You’ll find also the new console where I added the -d option to the concat command to merge PDF files found in an input directory and I added the chance to set a starting value for the [FILENUMBER] prefix (Ex. [FILENUMBER13] or [FILENUMBER###13]). This version require a JVM 1.6.
Let me know your feedbacks

PDFsam 1.1.1 and 1.5.1e released

Hi everybody,
I just released the new PDFsam versions. These versions come with a bug fixed (now PDF split feature should always manage bookmarks correctly), with a new “split PDF by bookmarks level” feature (thank you Carsten for sharing) and with a new console feature to let you rotate pages when merging PDF files (only a console feature for now..).

1.1.0 and 1.5.0e released!

Hi everybody,
I just released the new versions 1.1.0 and 1.5.0e of PDFsam basic and enhanced. In these versions you’ll find a bugfix that should reduce (hopefully a lot) OutOfMemory errors, the Alternate Mix module added to the basic version, a restyle of the plugins layout, some new complex prefix, three new console commands (decrypt, slideshow and setviewer) and updated langpack, looks and iText.
The enhanced version has three new modules to decrypt PDF files, extract attachments from a PDF file and set viewer options on a PDF file to tell the viewer application how it should open it (fullscreen, outline, single page, two pages …..).
Even if these versions have been built over the 1.0.3 (and 1.4.3e) they are not flagged as stable because there are a lot of new features and changes.

New pdfsam-console license

The next PDFsam release (around Christmas) will come with the new pdfsam-console. Some new command (pdf decrypt, set viewer options on pdf and set transitions on pdf) will be added and it will be dual licensed (GLP and LGPL) to allow use in commercial software. It’s still open source but the LGPL is less restrictive and you can choose the license you prefer among GPL and LGPL.

pdfsam 1.0.0 beta 1 and 1.4.0e beta 1 released

Hi everybody,
I released new versions of PDFsam (1.0.0 beta 1 and 1.4.0e beta 1). In these versions I fixed some bugs (documents are now loaded ordered), added a sort feature to the selection table (clicking on the table headers) and some other minor changes. The enhanced version now has all the new features of version 1.0.0 and some new feature (multiple file selection in pdf encrypt plugin, page selection in CoverAndFooter plugin..). These releases come (again) without win32 installers and without tutorials but I finally can start to work on it so, next release will have installers and updated documents.

Feedback:
I’d like to thank every user who sent me a feedback. It’s very important for me to know what works and what doesn’t so keep sending emails, forum posts, bug trackers and so on.

Feature requests:
I added to PDFsam any reasonable feature requested in these 2 years. I need to know what users need so please keep asking new features or improvements.

Basic version 1.0.0 alpha released

Hi,
I released the new basic version 1.0.0 alpha. This is a complete refactoring of the basic version, a not stable test version. It needs to be tested and there’s no win32 installer, no tutorial and translations are not completed. It’s only for those braves who want to test it while I’m finishing working on the enhanced version, tutorials and so on.
In this version you’ll find a new console, new pdf split by size feature, new combo to chose output pdf version, fields to input passwords to open encrypted documents, save and load environments, config file can be placed in ${user.home}/.pdfsam, log4j logging window, encoded exception messages, new pdf merge page limit (n-) to merge pdf from page n to the end of the document and updated libraries.
As you can see there are a lot of new features and they need to be tested so please report any bug you find.
I’m waiting the new language model to be approved in Rosetta so you can’t translate to your preferred language using Rosetta for now but you can find the model to be downloaded from the resources section.
