PDFTron Systems Incorporated, a leading global provider of PDF development tools and components, today announced the official release of a new version of PDFTron's advanced PDF library, PDFNetTM SDK, an advanced and comprehensive PDF library for high-quality PDF creation, content extraction, editing, viewing and printing. The new version features support for interactive forms and markup in the viewer, PDF/A support, and support for CMYK & DeviceN rendering.

The new version significantly simplifies application development by providing a PDF viewing control that includes a new set of tools allowing instant PDF form filling, markup, and annotation manipulation. Developers can also use the new control to implement custom PDF tools and other PDF viewing extensions.

Another feature that many developers were waiting for in this release is support for native rendering of PDF pages in CMYK and DeviceN color spaces. Accurate rendering in CMYK and black channel preservation is essential for any graphics workflows and printers that require accurate color reproduction.

The new version also addresses needs of organizations interested in PDF archiving and long term preservation of digital documents. Using the new version of PDFNet SDK, developers can validate documents for PDF/A (ISO 19005-1) compliance and can convert existing PDF files to PDF/A compliant documents.

Because PDF/A validation and conversion functionality seamlessly integrates with the PDF creation, viewing, printing, and document manipulation features of PDFNet, organizations can quickly implement their workflows without having to deal with a mix of incompatible components.

With many other new enhancements and additions to the PDF library right across the board, the new update further boosts the PDF toolkit's already powerful performance. PDFNet SDK enables developers to incorporate virtually any PDF processing capability into their application or workflow.

"We are constantly at work enhancing PDFNet and listen carefully to the developer community for features and enhancements that are needed out there most," noted Catherine Andersz, Director of Marketing and Business Development. "The ultimate goal is to allow users to focus their time on building the core functionality of their applications and getting ahead of their competition, while having the assurance that their PDF needs are covered now and into the future."
