Melbourne, Australia — September 5, 2011

Debenu, the company that powers the PDF user community via its Planet PDF website, today announced the release of version 8 of Quick PDF Library. With a range of exciting new features, this release represents a major step forward for the PDF SDK that has grown to be one of the most popular PDF toolkits over the past decade. New features in version 8 include:

  • Support for AES-256 encryption
  • PDF/A-1b creation
  • TrueType font subsetting
  • HTML5 renderer output
  • New plain text extraction with natural reading order
  • Support for PDF417 stacked linear barcode symbology

“Our goal with the version 8 release was to make working with Quick PDF Library even easier than it already is. This meant that several changes were made to the SDK’s public API, as well as the security engine receiving a major overhaul. We’re expecting our customers to be very happy with these changes.” said Karl De Abrew, Debenu CEO “Of course we wanted to do more with version 8 than just improving what we already had, so we added support for AES-256-bit encyption, PDF/A creation and much more. We just know our customers will love this new version.”


Quick PDF Library 8 is available immediately from the Debenu website.
