PDF to HTML5 conversion – development update

45 sec read

The beta program on our new Java PDF to HTML5 conversion application has been running for several months now and we have had some great feedback. It has been especially useful to show up issues with foreign language fonts and to flag up new features.

So we now now feel that with all the developments, the software has reached a suitable point for a version 1 release. It is not perfect yet (and our list of things to add is long) but you have to start somewhere. The software is now available as a fully functional 30 day trial version, and you will shortly be able to buy a license from us to use it without this limitation.

We have also decided that there will be a more powerful version (with a higher price with to match) in the next few weeks with the ability to extract Truetype fonts. We will continue to add new features to both releases and will have a regular monthly release (possibly more frequent if we think it’s a really cool feature or critical bug).

So please continue to let us have your feedback and let us know what features you would like to see.
