RAD PDF 2.26 Released

2014 has seen a number of significant updates to RAD PDF, our ASP.NET PDF editor, form filler and viewer. This December here at Red Software we're excited to announce the release of version 2.26.

With this update users can now easily upload files using drag and drop when appending or adding an image. RAD PDF automatically detects whether or not the client browser supports drag and drop, only showing this modern browser feature to clients which support it. Modern browsers will also see information about the upload progress (and how much longer RAD PDF expects it will need).

We've also improved the way in which large files are handled by RAD PDF. Reducing RAD PDF's memory footprint, these internal improvements will improve performance especially on servers with limited memory resources. We've added settings like the new MessageDataSizeThreshold property to allow these improvements to be tweaked when necessary.

Version 2.26 also includes an improved DocumentKey generation scheme. While the existing keys are strong, we've made them a little stronger without performance impact.

This release also includes several bug fixes.

This version is available free of charge to all Red Software customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 2.24 Released

Red Software is proud to announce version 2.24 of RAD PDF, the ASP.NET PDF form filler, PDF editor, and PDF reader. This update improves link annotation support and broadens custom font options.

With this new version, all existing link annotations are now accessible via our Client API and Server API. The GUI also has been updated to facilitate removal of the existing links. Additionally, newly added links are now more easily utilized. When highlighting is turned off, these links can now be activated when clicked.

We've also added support for web fonts, so that if you are using a custom PdfFontResource, that font can be made available client side via a web font (e.g. EOT, TTF, WOFF, etc). This means that fonts not universally installed client side (e.g. a barcode font, or a signature font) can now still be used by making it available over the web. No longer do PdfFontResources need to rely on "web-safe" fonts.

This release also includes several minor bug fixes.

This version is available free of charge to all Red Software customers with an active Maintenance Plan.
