RAD PDF 2.29 Released

Red Software is proud to announce version 2.29 of the ASP.NET PDF component, RAD PDF. This new version includes a 64-bit only operation mode, document exporting / importing, and PdfButtonField creation options.

This release offers methods to export and import RAD PDF document data, preserving the document state in RAD PDF (using a BSON format). It also adds the option to create button form fields (with submit or reset actions).

Additionally, Popup Annotations now can be positioned off page (except in IE6 and IE7 where it poses currently unavoidable issues).

This update also includes several bug fixes, particularly with IE10 and IE11.

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

Release Notes

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.

RAD PDF 2.25 Released

Red Software is excited to release version 2.25 of the PDF editing and viewing ASP.NET component, RAD PDF! A new printer settings dialog now allows users to print page ranges, improving the user experience as well as server performance (as non-desired pages are no longer rendered). This update also includes rendering improvements across the board, including CMap (Character Map) support.

Version 2.25 also introduces several minor new features, including improved layout metrics for multilined PdfTextFields using fonts not installed on the client.

This release also includes several bug fixes.

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

RAD PDF 2.23 Released

Red Software is excited to announce version 2.23 of RAD PDF, the PDF editor, PDF form filler, and PDF reader for ASP.NET. This release improves RenderOnDemand performance and adds visual improvements for browsers with blend mode support (e.g. Chrome Canary*, Firefox Nightly*)

Version 2.23 also updates how PDF form field names containing periods are handled. In previous versions, RAD PDF did not accept periods in the name provided. RAD PDF now automatically creates the necessary non-terminal fields to accommodate such naming.

We've also added a new CustomData property to the PdfDocument class. This new property allows PDF output to be tagged with custom data which can then again be accessed when a PDF is again loaded into RAD PDF, allowing RAD PDF to support an even wider range of work flows.

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.

Release Notes

 

*These are experimental browser builds and may require additional configuration to enable blend modes. It is our hope though that CSS blend mode support becomes a widely implemented standard, which RAD PDF will be ready for.
