PDFsam 1.1.1 and 1.5.1e released

Hi everybody,
I just released the new PDFsam versions. These versions come with a bug fixed (now PDF split feature should always manage bookmarks correctly), with a new “split PDF by bookmarks level” feature (thank you Carsten for sharing) and with a new console feature to let you rotate pages when merging PDF files (only a console feature for now..).

1.1.0 and 1.5.0e released!

Hi everybody,
I just released the new versions 1.1.0 and 1.5.0e of PDFsam basic and enhanced. In these versions you’ll find a bugfix that should reduce (hopefully a lot) OutOfMemory errors, the Alternate Mix module added to the basic version, a restyle of the plugins layout, some new complex prefix, three new console commands (decrypt, slideshow and setviewer) and updated langpack, looks and iText.
The enhanced version has three new modules to decrypt PDF files, extract attachments from a PDF file and set viewer options on a PDF file to tell the viewer application how it should open it (fullscreen, outline, single page, two pages …..).
Even if these versions have been built over the 1.0.3 (and 1.4.3e) they are not flagged as stable because there are a lot of new features and changes.


Pdf merge gets stuck?

Some users reported that PDFsam gets stuck trying to merge PDF files. After some investigation I found there’s something wrong with the regular expression used to check the output file extension (PDF merge module). A temporary solution is to fill the output file name with the extension included. I’ll fix it with the next release.

pdfsam 1.0.0 beta 1 and 1.4.0e beta 1 released

Hi everybody,
I released new versions of PDFsam (1.0.0 beta 1 and 1.4.0e beta 1). In these versions I fixed some bugs (documents are now loaded ordered), added a sort feature to the selection table (clicking on the table headers) and some other minor changes. The enhanced version now has all the new features of version 1.0.0 and some new feature (multiple file selection in pdf encrypt plugin, page selection in CoverAndFooter plugin..). These releases come (again) without win32 installers and without tutorials but I finally can start to work on it so, next release will have installers and updated documents.

I’d like to thank every user who sent me a feedback. It’s very important for me to know what works and what doesn’t so keep sending emails, forum posts, bug trackers and so on.

Feature requests:
I added to PDFsam any reasonable feature requested in these 2 years. I need to know what users need so please keep asking new features or improvements.


Basic version 1.0.0 alpha released

I released the new basic version 1.0.0 alpha. This is a complete refactoring of the basic version, a not stable test version. It needs to be tested and there’s no win32 installer, no tutorial and translations are not completed. It’s only for those braves who want to test it while I’m finishing working on the enhanced version, tutorials and so on.
In this version you’ll find a new console, new pdf split by size feature, new combo to chose output pdf version, fields to input passwords to open encrypted documents, save and load environments, config file can be placed in ${user.home}/.pdfsam, log4j logging window, encoded exception messages, new pdf merge page limit (n-) to merge pdf from page n to the end of the document and updated libraries.
As you can see there are a lot of new features and they need to be tested so please report any bug you find.
I’m waiting the new language model to be approved in Rosetta so you can’t translate to your preferred language using Rosetta for now but you can find the model to be downloaded from the resources section.

pdfsam basic 0.7 beta 2

Hi everybody, I released the new beta version of PDFsam basic. In this version you’ll find updated libraries, a compress feature for pdf split and pdf merge and the langpack with many new languages.
I hope I’ll be able to release the enhanced version soon.
