I had few unpublished changes on PDFsam 2.x so I decided to publish a new release. This is probably going to be the last 2.x release since v3 is getting closer and closer.
Let me know if there is any issue with it.
I finally found some time to release the new version of PDFsam. I want to apologize for the long delay but, as some of you may know, I worked hard on another project (Sejda) in the past year and PDFsam was left a bit behind. Release 3 is not coming out any time soon so I decided to release version 2.2.2 with fixes to some of the most annoying bugs. Among the others:
- Windows msi installation package supporting silent installation
- New pdfsam-starter.exe and finally no more “javaw.exe not found” error message
- Confirmation sounds are now working on Java 7
- No more “invisible GUI” and crappy “delete gui-config.xml” workaround
- Upgraded thumbnails generation libraries and langpack
As usual the new version can be downloaded here.
Please report back if you find any issue.
I just uploaded the Windows MSI installers (32 and 64 bits) for the enhanced version. The installers allow silent and Active Directory installation. Currently only the PDFsam enhanced version has been ported to MSI installer but with the next release (in about a month) PDFsam basic will have it too. Please report if you find any bug.
sorry for the late update but I finally added the MacOS dmg version of pdfsam 2.2.1 (basic and enhanced).
I released versions 2.2.1 basic and enhanced, available in the download section. In these release you’ll find some library upgrade (JPodRenderer, the thumbnails generation library, among the others) and some bug fixes (most important one bug affecting the bookmarks handling during the pdf merge and pdf split).
The ICEpdf thumbnail generation has been upgraded as well to the latest version.
MacOS dmg will be available soon.
I just released a new version of the ICEpdf thumbnails generation library with a fix for bug #3072732 (it wasn’t handling correctly pages rotation). You can find the link in the download section.
finally I uploaded the new dmg archives for the 2.2.0 and 2.2.0e versions of PDFsam. You can find the link in the download section for the basic version and in the enhanced forums for the enhanced version.
I just released the new versions of PDFsam basic and enhanced. These releases are mainly focused on bug fixes and feature requests. Now the ImageViewer for the single pages preview has zoom in, zoom out and rotate capabilities, the alternate mix has a new option that lets you define the step for both the input documents, the pdf split module has been modified to better handle input files with a big bookmarks tree and should be now much faster splitting pdf with these kind of bookmarks. The user interface has been modified with accelerator keys, warning messages if the destination field is empty and the file chooser now remembers the previous path.
I just released the Mac OS X dmg archives version 2.1.0 and 2.1.0e.
I just released the new version of basic and enhanced PDFsam. In this version almost all the libraries have been updates, 6 bugs have been fixed, the new pdf document metadata module has been added to the enhanced version (this module can be used to set pdf metadata like author, title, etc..) and some feature request has been implemented (DnD support on *nix systems, save/restore of the GUI settings when closing/opening PDFsam and saving the environment will save informations about the selected plugin).
I also created a thumbnails generation library using ICEpdf. This library can be plugged and used as thumbnails generation engine instead of the default JPodRenderer generation library.
The Mac OS dmg distribution will be ready soon.
