“In addition, I’m thrilled to announce that the www.quickpdf.org website will become the official user-to-user forum for Quick PDF Library,” stated De Abrew, “For over 4 years a dedicated group of Quick PDF Library (formerly iSEDQuickPDF and QuickPDF) users have been supporting their fellow developers over at www.quickpdf.org, providing expert advice and help, and powering a fantastic user-to-user forum, which has helped literally thousands in need. This is exciting news as it ensures that the library’s users will continue to enjoy the benefits of a very strong PDF community.”

“All existing customers who purchased version 5.11 after Feb 3, 2009, are entitled to receive a free upgrade to version 7.12,” De Abrew added, “Using our extensive experience with PDF technology we’ve moved that one step closer to making QuickPDF into ‘The Unrivaled PDF Developer Toolkit(TM)’.”
