Although it has only been 2 weeks since the RTM version of SharePoint 2010 was released, our team has been working flat out to make the popular Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint compatible with both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010.
As we were going through a full QA cycle anyway we also validated the software with the RTM version of Office 2010 to make sure our customers can make use of the latest and greatest innovations such as Excel Spark lines when generating PDF files.
For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to convert common document types to PDF format from within SharePoint using a friendly user interface, workflows or a web service call without the need to install any client side software or Adobe Acrobat. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on WSS 3, MOSS as well as SharePoint 2010 and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. For detailed information check out the product page.
