Release Date: 2016.11.14
6.7.1 is a major release. Please see What's New for the changes that affect all platforms, including iOS.
The framework now ships as a dynamic framework. (A static version is still also included.) The dynamic framework simplifies integration, improves compile (linking) time and enables smaller app updates. Please see the [transition guide](Static to Dynamic Library Migration Guide.html), also included in the download package, for moving from the static library to the dynamic library.
A bitcode version of the SDK is available license holders, but is not included in the standard download. If you you require a bitcode version of the SDK, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both the static and dynamic frameworks now ship with a true umbrella header, so you only need to
#import <PDFNet/PDFNet.h> for access to all classes and methods.
PDFNet now automatically registers the resource file pdfnet.res, in the case of the static library by searching the main bundle, and in the case of the dynamic library, using the copy that is packaged with it. You no longer need to register it yourself. The dynamic library also includes and automatically registers the .plugin files.
A new Xcode digital signature sample that demonstrates how to digitally (cryptographically) sign a document.
Sample projects no longer use any classes deprecated in iOS 9 or earlier.
Purge memory is now called automatically in low memory conditions. This behaviour can be toggled with the new PTPDFViewCtrl property
overlayViewproperty, used to display content on top of the PDF. This the preferred method, rather than using the ContainerView instance variable.
purgeMemoryOnMemoryWarningproperty, used to control if memory is automatically purged if a system memory warning is received. Default is
directionalLockEnabledproperty, used to control if the UIScrollViewer that displays the PDF has the directional lock enabled. Default is
-(PTPDFRect*)GetScreenRectForAnnot:page_num:, used to get the bounding box for an annotation.
-(void)ClearThumbCache, used to delete the thumbnail cache.
PTToolDelegateprotocol renamed to
PTTool, better reflecting the nature of the protocol.
#import <Tools/Tools.h>gives access to the entire library.
showMenuhas been changed to
showSelectionMenuto avoid a new conflict with an Apple private API which on occasion caused an app store submission to be rejected.
AVKitfor the new movie player.
