PDFConverterServicesBox4_thumb3Earlier today we released version 6.1 of the PDF Converter for SharePoint, which ships with an improved version of our popular PDF Conversion engine. As always we are also releasing an update to the standalone version of the Muhimbi PDF Converter Services, which includes all new functionality and fixes including support for Office 2013 and 3rd party converters.

A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is an ‘on premises’ 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, .NET & PHP based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email) AutoCAD and Image based files and is used by some of the largest organisations in the world for mission critical document conversions. In addition to converting documents the product ships with a sophisticated watermarking engine, PDF Splitting and Merging facilities and the ability to secure PDF files. A separate SharePoint specific version is available as well.
