Progress indicator

Progress indicator
Hi,
I just finished to build the progress indicator I’ll most probably use in PDFsam v3 to display task progress for pdf merge, split etc. It’s a JavaFX control and, since it can be reused, I created a separated repository for it so people can clone it and do whatever they want with it. Here on GitHub.

Translations for PDFsam v3

Hi everybody,
I uploaded the new translations template for PDFsam v3 here, it’s obviously not complete since development is still going on but I’ll keep it updated. If you want to help and start translating you are more than welcome.

New Sejda v1.0.0.M9

Hi Guys,
we just released the new Sejda version. It’s probably the latest milestone before we go GA and most likely the version that will be included in PDFsam v3. It’s a chance for those of you using the command line interface (either the pdfsam-console or the sejda-console) to upgrade and test the latest features/fixes. We improved the prefix functionality and enriched the directory input for the pdf merge task with a regex to match pdf documents name. Here is a short description of what has been updated.
For those of you using a Debian based Linux distribution (like Ubuntu) and willing to split and merge pdf documents form command line, we created a .deb package for the sejda-console, it can be downloaded from the project page here.

PdfToJpg added to Sejda

Hi guys,
as you probably know I spent the past two years working (among the others) on Sejda. In few words it’s a Java library and it will become the core pdf manipulation library in PDF Split And Merge v3.x. It currently has two interfaces, a command line interface that can replace the pdfsam-console and a web interface where you can merge pdf, split pdf, etc without any download needed.
That said, we just added a PdfToJpg task to Sejda and, together with the PdfToTiff are two of the new features that PDFsam v3 will have. If you want to try them out, any feedback is welcome.
Enjoy!

A tailored user interface

Settings screenHi guys,
as you know I’m working on v3.0.0 and I’m currently working on the user interface. I created a forum post where I attached some screen, I’d like to discuss the UI with you… after all it’s you who is going to split and merge pdf documents with pdfsam and you are probably the best source of ideas and experience.

What in the future?

Hi everybody,
it has been a while since I wrote my last post and I want to keep you informed on what I’m working on. Since release 2.2 I started to work on a new project that will be the core library for PDFsam 3. This new project is a java library based on the pdfsam-console but written from scratch. The reasons why I’m rewriting the pdfsam-console are many but the most interesting for you users, I think is that this new library will be, hopefully, the core for an online version of PDFsam. Of course I’m still supporting PDFsam on the forum and I’ll fix bugs opened in these months and nothing changes at the moment, I just wanted to let you know what’s going on.

New pdfsam-console license

The next PDFsam release (around Christmas) will come with the new pdfsam-console. Some new command (pdf decrypt, set viewer options on pdf and set transitions on pdf) will be added and it will be dual licensed (GLP and LGPL) to allow use in commercial software. It’s still open source but the LGPL is less restrictive and you can choose the license you prefer among GPL and LGPL.

Again on translations

Hi everybody,
the 20th of June I’ll make the package that will be tested and, if no bug is found, the 30th of June it will be released as the new stable version. If you want your translation included into the new stable release it must be ready before the 20th of June.
As usual you can translate PDFsam using the web interface here

Enhanced version forever? 1€

Hi everybody,
starting from today, with a donation of at least 1€ you gain access to the enhanced version forever and not just for 1 year. I already updated existing donor accounts.
I realized that I’m not going to make money with PDFsam and donations are not a real income source but they are more a symbolic support to the project and to the open source world. To say “thanks” to all those users who believed and supported PDFsam, and to all the future donors I decided to remove the 1 year limitation so, starting from today, just 1€ to have PDFsam enhanced and access to the enhanced forum forever!
Thank you for the support
Andrea
