PDF Converter API and Server Platform 8.1 - Maintenance Release

Posted at: 13:57 on 27 May 2016 by Muhimbi

Similarly to the SharePoint version released yesterday, today’s release of the Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform is a small, but important, upgrade that solves a number of bugs and introduces some refinements.

A quick introduction for those not familiar with the product: The Muhimbi PDF Converter API and Server Platform 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, Ruby & PHP based solutions. It supports a large number of file types including MS-Office and ODF file formats as well as HTML, MSG (email), EML, 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, an OCR facility and the ability to secure PDF files. A separate SharePoint specific version is available as well.

Some of the main changes and additions in the new version are as follows:
