As you can see on our GitHub release page, as part of our release process we create a
.asc file corresponding to each downloadable package. Files
.asc are ASCII file containing a plain text digital signature of the corresponding package file.
we released the new major version 5 of PDFsam Basic. A lot of work has been done and many things changed compared to version 4, here is a summary:
From time to time we have users reporting that the text in PDFsam Basic looks too small, the lettering is hard to read, and the application generally difficult to use due to this issue. This happens especially on high density monitors.
PDFsam Basic lets you easily split a PDF file into any number of PDF files, at no cost.
we just released the new PDFsam Basic 4.3.4 where we upgraded the bundled Java Runtime to version 11.0.17, we upgraded the PDF engine and translations. You can download this version from the download page.
the new PDFsam Basic 4.3.3 is out. We upgraded the bundled JDK using the latest 11.0.16, the PDF engine to include some fixes and we improved the loading of
csv files containing the input list.
You can download it from the download section.
we released the new version of PDFsam Basic where we upgraded translations and PDF engine.
We improved the handling of broken PDF files where the PDF engine has to perform a full scan of the PDF objects and we now handle correctly those files containing garbage bytes at the beginning.
As usual you can download it from the download section.
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 sizein 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
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.
we released the new version 4.2.7 of our free and open source tool PDFsam Basic. In this new version we updated the underlying PDF engine with few bug fixes. PDFsam should now be able to better merge and split even corrupted PDF files but please let us know if you come across a document that we cannot process.
