PDFResurrect Changelog

New in version 0.12

November 30th, 2012
  • The main fix regards how the tool was locating the EOF token which the PDF writers place at the end of different versions of PDFs.
  • Previously, if an EOF token was split across a 256-byte boundary, then Mr. Resurrect would not have found it.
  • The new algorithm might be a tad slower, but is more precise.

New in version 0.11 (May 31st, 2012)

  • This is a bugfix release.

New in version 0.8 (September 11th, 2009)

  • This is a bugfix release.
  • A indefinite stall would occur if a trailer for linearized PDF could not be found. This case is probably because the PDF is using xref streams.

New in version 0.7 (September 10th, 2009)

  • This version deals with linearized PDFs and adds the (-i) option to report "creator" information about the document.
  • Creator information in the newer XML metadata stream format is not handled.

New in version 0.6 (May 25th, 2009)

  • pdfresurrect.1: Added Francois Marier's man page. Added NOTES and COPYRIGHT to man page.
  • Makefile.in: Added .PHONY target for uninstall
  • Removed backup target
  • install and uninstall targets also add/remove the man page
  • configure.ac: Added default prefix as suggested by Francois Marier

New in version 0.5 (May 20th, 2009)

  • The changes address portability, and add some under-the-hood possibilities for dealing with xref streams that are compressed (possible in PDFs of version 1.5+). A message will be displayed if such a xref table is found. Also, some notes on validity and security have been added to the README.

New in version 0.04 (October 10th, 2008)

  • This release corrects a misspelling in the URL for the license location.
