PDF Converter Services 10.0 - Print Only & Barcode Watermarks, Convert Attachments

Posted at: 14:32 on 07 February 2020 by Muhimbi


Well, it is that time of the year again, time for a brand-new release of the Muhimbi PDF Converter Services (See this post for the new SharePoint version). Versions 10.0 already, yep, there is no version 9 because we are just like Microsoft and Apple. Perhaps we should have called it Version X.

In all seriousness, we have skipped the 9.x range as those version numbers are reserved for the Online version of our software. From a feature perspective all 3 platforms (SharePoint, the SDK and Online Subscription services) are generally in sync.

As always there are many improvements and refinements, but also some great new features, specifically:


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, 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. Separate SharePoint and Cloud-based Subscription services are available as well.
