It is that beautiful time of the year again where the sun is shining, the birds are singing and new versions of the popular Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint are released left right and center. I say ‘versions’, but it really is only one version, a major milestone, version 5.0!

The list of new features is considerable but the main ones are as follows:

 
Some of this new functionality can be seen in action in a webcast we recorded recently.

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 - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MS-Office, HTML and images - 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. 

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words so here you go. Links to more detailed information as well as a download of the latest version is available at the end of this post.
