PDFsam Basic 4.3.0 released

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

Merge PDF with PDFsam v3

Hi everybody,
today PDFsam v3 performed its very first task merging pdf files.
There’s still quite a lot of work to do but I wanted to share the good news, the merge pdf module of PDFsam v3 kind of works and it’s going to be the first one to be finalized. I still don’t have any bundle for you to test and I don’t know yet when I will, but things are moving, I have screen shots to prove it 🙂
