Posted at: 10:40 on 15 June 2012 by Muhimbi


Ever since the 5.2 release at the end of January, we have been working overtime to finalise the next major release, the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint version 6.0. Congratulations to the entire team for this amazing milestone.

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

For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to watermark, merge, split, secure and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF as well as other formats 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, Nintex Workflow, 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.
