We have spent a week on the new extensions to allow PDF to SVG conversion and pretty impressed with SVG as a format. It is compact, scalable and the text is crisp and selectable.
A first release will be available in the near future for people using the PDF 2 HTML5 converter and we will be using this to add SVG as an alternative to canvas in our PDF 2 HMTL5 converter. It offers a number of advantages over canvas (including text selection and scaling).
For the last two years we have focussed on making it easy for us to use our PDF library to convert PDF into multiple formats. The focus has been to try and make as much of the process as generic as possible and we are also improving how we do this.
Today we have a new release of our PDF 2 HTML5 converter and we have incremental improvements for PDF 2 JavaFx and PDF 2 FXML is almost ready for a first release. So the question is what else would you like to see next?
IDRsolutions develop a Java PDF library, a PDF forms to HTML5 converter, a PDF to HTML5 or SVG converter and a Java Image Library that doubles as an ImageIO replacement. On the blog our team post about anything interesting they learn about.
