Finally, new release!

Hello guys,
I finally found some time to release the new version of PDFsam. I want to apologize for the long delay but, as some of you may know, I worked hard on a couple of other projects (What A Cult and Sejda) in the past year and PDFsam was left a bit behind. Release 3 is not coming out any time soon so I decided to release version 2.2.2 with fixes to some of the most annoying bugs. Among the others:

  • Windows msi installation package supporting silent installation
  • New pdfsam-starter.exe and finally no more “javaw.exe not found” error message
  • Confirmation sounds are now working on Java 7
  • No more “invisible GUI” and crappy “delete gui-config.xml” workaround
  • Upgraded thumbnails generation libraries and langpack

As usual the new version can be downloaded here.
Please report back if you find any issue.
Enjoy

    I have been using 2.2.1 and it works well, but when trying to upgrade to 2.2.2 I keep receiving this error:
    “pdfsam” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

    I tested it on Mac OS 10.8.2 and I found this solution working for me: http://www.pdfsam.org/bbforum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2599

    I cannot start the application. Error message: “This application requires a Java runtime environment 1.6.0″. Title of the error window: “Cannot find Java runtime environment”. I installed this old environment (I had already installed version 7 update 9), but the error remains. My OS: Windows 7 Home premium.


    • Same problem …. always getting “Required java 1.6″….

    Java 7 Update 1 (64 bit) has been installed in my computer with Windows 7 premium version 64 bit. Is it ready for PDFSam?


    • PDFsam runs with Java 1.6 or above so yes, it should run (should because they are not always 100% compatible).

    all attempts to load this latest version of pdfsam have failed keep getting message stating program in the windows msi installer missing. Any suggestions on how I might get round this. I’m running window 7 64bit and have loaded java 7.

    I’ve been using pdfsam for quite a while (thanks, by the way) and I still haven’t figured out the answer to this question:

    Why are both “Visual Document Composer” and “Visual Reorder” included? It seems to me that “Visual Reorder” is just a minor subset of “Visual Document Composer.” I find having both confusing.

    I have been using pdfsam under Linux for more than 3 years. Thanks for the good works and keep updating it.

    PDFSam used to work perfectly ok with Java 6 (6u2x) but seems to have an issue with Java 7 (I am running 7u9 at present). The “Destination output file” box does not accept any keyboard input under Java 7, even with the latest 2.2.2 release. If I switched back to Java 6, it works again. A work-around is to create a dummy pdf file in the destination directory via the console command:

    touch xxxx.pdf

    and then let pdfsam overwrites it as output file.

    I do not understand what is the root cause but hope that this issue could be fixed in future releases.

    I have used pdfsam with great results for the last couple of years. Recently it has stopped opening. I click on it to open it and nothing happens. Any thoughts as to why this could be?
