Google Analytics — September 2013

As promised: better stats than we had in August!

We started off slowly with labor day, and we only had 30 days instead of 31, but towards the end of the month, the numbers really started to get better.

iText Software Group: beschrijving

Ik zie dat de geselecteerden van de FAST 50 vorig jaar in de Trends werden voorgesteld in zo'n 100 tot 150 woorden. Ik heb eens een poging gedaan om dit met de iText Software Group te doen:

Google Analytics — August 2013

Summer is over, and so will be the lower-than-average Google Analytics results. This was August:

Google Analytics — July 2013

Ai ai ai July! We've had two disk failures on the server hosting our site, causing a downtime of half an hour to an hour.

iText 5.4.3 — XML Worker 5.4.3

We're releasing iText 5.4.3 and as promised, we've been working on PAdES-5 and PDF/A.

For the moment, only BES is supported (EPES will follow). As for PDF/A, iText will now make sure you can create documents that are fully compliant with PDF/A-1. That was already possible in the past, but iText didn't check if all the requirements for compliance were met, that was the responsibility of the developer. With the new release all these checks are done by iText.
