Release Notes: Apart from many bugfixes, such as fixing a multithreading problem introduced in iText 5.3.5, this release focuses on the creation of structured PDFs. It's now possible to create PDFs that are automatically tagged when using iText's high-level objects such as Document, Paragraph, PdfPTable, etc. Tagged PDF is a first step towards better support for PDF/UA and PDF/A (level A) compliance.
Release Notes: Major changes were made with respect to verification and validation of digital signatures, more specifically for PAdES 4 (LTV) documents. Initial preparations were made for high-level support for Tagged PDF.
Release Notes: Most of the changes involve the digital signatures API which is documented in a white paper which will be released next week. This release fixes some bugs in PdfReader, PdfAWriter, and JPEG/TIFF handling. New functionality to allow page breaks at specific row numbers has been added to PdfPTable.
Release Notes: Preparations are being made for better PDF/A support, and that's why all PDF/A-related code has been moved to a separate package. Image support is improved: invalid ICC profiles are now ignored, and more types of BMPs are available. This release corrects the position of visible signatures and fixes some minor bugs.
Release Notes: A while ago, the Bouncy Castle Crypto API was upgraded from 1.46 to 1.47. This upgrade was a major one: all the code related to digital signatures had to be changed. Digital signing of PDF documents was re-engineered. All of the traditional ways of signing (some of which will be deprecated as soon as the PDF 2.0 specification is released) were removed in favor of detached signatures, both CMS as well as CADES style.
