we just released the first milestone of PDFsam Basic version 5. A lot of work has been done (and a lot of work is still needed), and since it is in a working state, we have decided to release it to gather feedback. Here is a summary of what we modified and added:

  • Migrated everything to the latest JDK 19.0.1
  • Migrated all the dependencies to their latest version
  • Refreshed the default light theme
  • Added a couple of dark themes and an additional light theme
  • Extract pages tool now has the ability to create a separate PDF file for each page range
  • Added a new tool to insert a PDF document (every page or selected pages) into another one, multiple times every “n” pages.
  • Upgraded Sejda (PDF engine) to the latest milestone release. Sejda and all it’s dependencies have been lately migrated to JDK 17 and modularized (JPMS)
  • Upgraded sejda-io to latest v4. Version 4 has been migrated to JDK 19 and got rid of the Unsafe Cleaner hack to clean memory mapped files in favor of the Foreign Function & Memory API preview feature
  • No more FontAwesome (replaced by Unicons)
  • Removed Logback (replaced by Tinylog)
  • New tools icons
  • Application now runs on the modulepath
