As my grandfather always used to say, and I quote, “There is no better way to start the new year unless you have a brand new release of the popular Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint in your hands”. Words of Wisdom!

All kidding aside, we initially planned to make this a small interim release that improves upon the existing functionality, but we got carried away and added some big feature as well.

The main new features are as follows:

 
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.
