RAD PDF 3.27 Released

Today, Red Software releases RAD PDF 3.27, the newest version of the PDF reader, PDF annotator, PDF editor, PDF form filler, PDF form designer, PDF signer, and more for ASP.NET (including .NET Core, .NET 5, & .NET 6).

This release includes improved language support for languages which require complex text layout or scripts, like Arabic, Thai, Devanagari, Lao, and others. The new UseUniscribe property allows RAD PDF to use Microsoft's Uniscribe to assist in adding new fields and text which have connected characters or other complex font features required by the language. (This feature is only available when running RAD PDF on Windows.)

The new PdfAnnotation.Flatten and PdfField.Flatten properties allow for individual annotations and form fields to be flattened when saving a PDF. This allows developers to more easily implement custom workflows where certain elements of a PDF should be "burned in" or flattened.

Additionally, this version enhances server efficiency with "empty" documents, improves the client-side PDF rendering engine, allows Lite Document sessions to be updated, and fixes a number of important bugs.

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

RAD PDF 3.25 Released

Today, Red Software updates RAD PDF, a leading ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5 web component for editing, form filling, and signing PDF files in an online GUI.

This release now automatically pre-loads pages before and after the current page, allowing for smoother navigation from page to page in the RAD PDF interface. This behavior can be toggled using the new DisablePreloading property.

This update also includes some minor bug fixes including an issue when using small form fields and graphics in Safari 15 on macOS.

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

RAD PDF 3.24 Released

Red Software is happy to announce RAD PDF 3.24, the ASP.NET / ASP.NET 5 / ASP.NET Core Web Control for PDF editing, PDF form filling, PDF signing, PDF viewing, and more! This release includes a new date picker, rendering improvements, and a few minor bug fixes.

With the added date picker, date form fields in RAD PDF will now display month names and abbreviations when using mmm (3 letter abbreviation) / mmmm (full name) in date format strings. These can be set in RAD PDF's resource files, allowing this feature to be localized as well.

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

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.23 Released

Today, Red Software updates its ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5 web component RAD PDF, a leading PDF editing, PDF form filling, and PDF signing GUI.

This release is also now available via a NuGet for all supported platforms, including .NET Framework 3.5 / 4.x, .NET Core, and .NET 5! Our latest NuGet package helps streamline integrations, updates, and deployments.

With the introduction of the NuGet package, we have also made it easier to get started with sample code by cloning our GitHub repository for the latest examples of how to use RAD PDF.

Release Notes

RAD PDF 3.22 Released

Red Software is excited to release RAD PDF 3.22, the ASP.NET / ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5 Web Control for reading, printing, editing, filling, signing, and more with PDF files in almost any web browser!

This latest version allows RAD PDF to be deployed with server side page rendering, but without the RAD PDF System Service. This allows for tighter PDF file protection and faster rendering of large files when  deploying / developing using our nuget for a single instance. Implementations are now a breeze when using Azure App Services, ASP.NET 5, and similar environments.

With ASP.NET Core / ASP.NET 5, RAD PDF can now be configured to not use the RAD PDF System Service with a single line of code in a Setup.cs class:

app.UseRadPdf(new RadPdfCoreMiddlewareSettings() { UseService = false });

This UseService=false can also be used in the .NET Framework or .NET Core integration provider. HttpHandler rendering can be disabled by setting AllowHttpHandlerRendering=false.

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