Xpdf Changelog

New in version 3.03

August 17th, 2011
  • The "fixed pitch" text extraction mode was added. "pdftops -paper match" was modified to handle PDF files with different-sized pages, so it will now select the matching paper size on a page-by-page basis.
  • The ability for pdftoppm to write to stdout was added.
  • The pdfdetach tool was added. 256-bit AES decryption was implemented.
  • The t1lib section was commented out in the configure script, since t1lib has some potential security holes, and hasn't been updated in years.
  • The font configuration xpdfrc commands were redesigned.
  • The license was changed from GPLv2 to dual v2/v3 licensing.
