For example, if you own a Single Developer License + Standard Upgrade Protection for version 10 of Debenu PDF Viewer SDK then you will need to purchase the Single Developer Upgrade License + Standard Upgrade Protection (11.x to 12.x) product in order to upgrade to version 12 -— though you can choose to buy the Premium Upgrade Protection version of that product if you prefer.

Mobile PDF SDK: Debenu Quick PDF Library now supports Android

After almost two years of development we can’t wait for you to try our new version of Debenu Quick PDF Library for Android. It is now ready for download and purchase through the Debenu website as part of version 11.15.

This new version for Android is the full Debenu Quick PDF Library API minus printing and EMF functionality. If you are familiar with developing using Debenu Quick PDF Library on Windows then doing the same on Mac, iOS and Android will be easy for you.

This new Android version is part of our new cross-platform compatible library which already supports Windows, Mac and iOS, and will in the next few months support for the Linux platform, as well as the Xamarin development environment.

The new cross-platform compatible library is written in C/C++ which ensures that we’ll be able to support a variety of different platforms in the future as required.

Our goal is to support as many platforms and programming languages as possible to give our platform-agnostic customers the ability to create powerful applications that work with PDF files wherever they need to.

Stay tuned for more updates of all our products and especially for the new Linux version coming soon!

TGA now accepting eCTD submissions

TGAThe TGA have now started accepting applications from the pharmaceutical industry in the format of electronic Common Technical Documents (eCTD). After their initial pilot program, they have an updated the version of the Australian eCTD Module 1 and Regional Specification – Version 3.0.

These specifications include the following recommendations for the formatting of the PDF documents to further aid the reviewer in the application evaluation:

  • Add Bookmarks and a Table of Contents to make it easier for the reviewer to navigate through the PDF document.
  • If the PDF document contains more than five pages, a Table of Contents should be included on the first page of the document.
  • Where appropriate, use Hyperlinks to further help with the evaluation of the application.
  • Bookmarks and Hyperlink must be relative and should have the magnification ‘Inherit Zoom’.
  • Bookmarks and Hyperlinks cannot be broken or inactive.

Debenu PDF Aerialist Pharma is a great tool to use to ensure your PDF documents meet all of these requirements. With automated processes, it significantly reduces the time needed to format PDF documents before adding them into an eCTD compiler.

FDA move to only accept eSubmissions

FDA LogoWith the progress of technology we are bit by bit transitioning to working paperlessly in a range of different industries. In the pharmaceutical industry, this has been evident since 2003 when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started accepting submissions using electronic common technical document (eCTD) specifications. So far the transition to eSubmissions to the FDA has been optional. However, most pharmaceutical companies have already adopted the use of eSubmissions.

By May 2017, the submission of eCTD will be mandatory for New Drug Applications, Abbreviated New Drug Applications and Biologics Licence Applications. In May 2018, Commercial Investigational New Drug applications are also to become compulsory, with a start in May 2018.

By having manufacturers submitting their applications electronically, the workload of the FDA is eased. Submissions by paper are not only daunting in physical size with page numbers sometimes ranging in the tens of thousands, but the searchability of those papers is also virtually nil – leaving the reviewer to riffle through the pages to find a referenced document.

Here at Debenu we are paying close attention to the changes in the eCTD requirements, constantly working to improve Debenu PDF Aerialist Pharma so that it meets the demands for preparing documents for eSubmissions.
