Upcoming release

Hi everybody,
more than 2 months have passed since the last release but the next one is almost ready. With the next version all the enhanced users will have a new module to set pdf metadata (Title, Author..). For both basic and enhanced I spent some time implementing requests about the user interface like drag and drop support on Linux, save and load environments that saves and restores the selected module and finally, after many requests since the beginning of this project, the user interface will be restored every time you open/close PDFsam, this means the main window size, position, the 2 split panels and the selected plugin.
I want to really thank all those users who supported PDFsam (fortunately a lot) with money, ideas, suggestions, emails etc… you keep me working on it with enthusiasm.

Finally 2.0.0 and 2.0.0e

Hi everybody,
I just released the first stable versions of the branch 2. The new 2.0.0 and 2.0.0e are available to be downloaded. You’ll find some bug fixes, the context menu to add complex prefixes, the rotate pdf module, thumbnails with a slightly improved quality, modules are now in alphabetical order and the new console command ‘pagelabels’ to set page labels on a pdf document.
Enjoy

2.0.0 release candidate (basic and enhanced)

The new release candidate 1 for the basic and enhanced version is ready for download. In these versions you’ll find pdfsam-console with file logging capabilities, prefix field added to the Decrypt pdf module, some bug fixes, a fixed user interface that was hanging during thumbnails generation and the new version of iText (2.1.6).
As usual feedbacks are welcome.

2.0.0 beta (basic and enhanced) released!

Hi everybody,
I finally released the new versions of the branch 2. There are a lot of changes (fixes and improvements), take a look at the provided changelog to find out what’s changed. It’s still a beta release but everything should work and I can now focus on the thumbnails generation that is working but still a bit slow and a memory eater.

New 1.1.2 and 1.5.2 versions

The new versions are ready to be downloaded. In these versions you’ll find some bug fixes, some new console options, an updated langpack, the new “document properties” window and some enhancement.
The MacOS dmg archive will be available on Wednesday (1st of April).

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..).
Enjoy

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.
