PDF Converter Services 3.5 – Adds watermarking and pluggable converters

Posted at: 10:23 on 28 June 2010 by Muhimbi


It is that time of the month again where we release new versions of our server based PDF Conversion products. Today’s release of the Muhimbi PDF API and Server Platform adds native support for the much requested Watermarking functionality as well as the ability to add custom converters using a new plug-in architecture.

A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform is a server based SDK that allows software developers to convert typical Office files to PDF format using a robust, scalable but friendly Web Services interface from Java and .NET based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. A separate SharePoint specific version is available as well.

For details about the new functionality as well as a breaking change see the following posts:
