RAD PDF 3.19 Released

Today, Red Software announces version 3.19 of of the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5 Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, and signing PDF files, RAD PDF! This release focuses on new mobile features and rendering improvements. Pinch-to-zoom can now be used in the PdfWebControl / PdfWebControlLite to zoom pages in and out using two fingers on a touch screen. (The new DisableTouchGestures property allows these touch gestures to be turned off.)

This update also fixes a bug with markup annotations using non-ASCII text and improves the rendering speed (and overhead) of PDF pages containing JPEG 2000 images.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.18.5 Released

Red Software is excited to announce compatibility with ASP.NET 5 for its browser friendly GUI for online PDF file viewing, editing, and form filling, RAD PDF!

Version 3.18.5 provides out-of-the-box compatibility with .NET 5's new security defaults and is a recommended update for all customers. This release changes the default Lite Document session serializer to the new PdfLiteSessionSerializer, a secure replacement for the previous default, BinaryFormatter. At this time, PdfLiteSessionSerializer will fallback to BinaryFormatter to maximize compatibility. This can be further secured (and will be the default in a future release) by using another secure formatter / serializer or by setting the static property:

PdfLiteSession.DefaultFormatter = new PdfLiteSessionSerializer(false);

Additionally, this release also includes minor bug fixes and other improvements.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

RAD PDF 3.18 Released

Red Software is proud to announce version 3.18 of the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, and signing PDF files, RAD PDF! This release focuses on making the objects in RAD PDF easier to create and work with. PdfObjects can now be created via their own constructors and PdfFields each support a Value property allowing for the easy importing and exporting of form data.

A new Client API "objectKeypress" event has been added, allowing for RAD PDF implementations to limit user input for each keystroke (e.g. limit a field to numeric input only).

Additionally, this new version includes a rendering bug fix, our nuget now includes a BETA implementation for ASP.NET Core on Linux, and other minor improvements.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

RAD PDF 3.17 Released

Red Software is excited to announce version version 3.17 of RAD PDF, the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, signing, and now certifying PDF files!

This release includes a new "Redo" option for users of the GUI allowing users to both undo and redo their actions. Redo can be invoked via the Client API, Edit menu, or CTRL-Y shortcut.

The PdfSignatureShape popup now also resizes itself better for mobile use. Previously, screens narrower than 520px did not show the popup correctly.

Additionally, this new version includes new certification options for ASP.NET Core and other minor improvements.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.16 Released

Red Software is proud to announce version version 3.16 of the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, signing, and now certifying PDF files, RAD PDF!

This latest release includes the ability to certify documents by digitally signing them with RSA / X.509 certificates. Utilizing asymmetric (public-key) cryptography, this allows third parties to detect changes made to the document after saving it by verifying a digital "signature" (in supported PDF viewers). The new CertifyUsing property can be used to select a PKCS #12 certificate file or other X.509 certificate (with a private key) which will be used to "sign" the PDF output. You can also use the new PdfTimeStamper to add a time stamp when certifying the document.

Additionally, this new version includes undo improvements, improved exception messaging, and other minor improvements.

This update is available free of charge to customers with an active Maintenance Plan.
