PDFsam Basic 4.3.0 released

Hello,
we just released the new version 4.3.0 of PDFsam Basic. We upgraded translations, bundled JDK and Sejda to their more recent versions. A number of fixes were added to Sejda but most notably we fixed:

  • An issue with the Normalize page size in the Merge tool where outline and link annotation destinations may end up with wrong destination coordinates
  • An issue with Tiling patterns streams that weren’t processed during the optimization process. This could lead to missing pattern resources in some cases

PDFsam and Log4j2 vulnerability

Hi,
as you have probably heard already a vulnerability was found in Log4j2, a popular logging library. PDFsam Basic uses Logback as its logging library and is therefore not affected by the vulnerability. Meanwhile, a lower severity issue was discovered in Log4j 1.x and Logback and was fixed in Logback v1.2.8.
We have updated and released PDFsam Basic v4.2.9 to use the fixed version of Logback. You can download it as usual from the Downloads section. We will remain vigilant and address any issues that may arise in the coming days.
