Product Release Announcement - ICEpdf 1.3

ICEsoft Technologies, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of ICEpdf® 1.3. ICEpdf is a 100 percent Java product for rendering PDF documents. ICEpdf can be used as a standalone document viewer or as a lightweight component tightly integrated into Java applications, and can be combined with ICEbrowser SDK or ICEbrowser BEAN to view PDF content embedded in HTML.

This multi-platform PDF viewer technology supports embedded TrueType fonts, font substitution, ToUnicode CMaps, and Acrobat standard security. Typical PDF viewer functionality such as viewing, scaling, navigating, and printing are fully supported. PDF documents can be exported to multiple image formats such as JPG, PNG, and SVG. ICEpdf can be deployed as part of a client application via Java applet or Java Web Start technology, or integrated into a server-side solution as a servlet.

This release contains a number of improvements to the parsing and rendering of PDF documents. ICEpdf now renders an even wider range of PDF documents faster and more accurately, including those created through a variety of PDF generators. The ICEpdf Viewer RI now offers drag and drop functionality for opening PDFs, and several UI improvements have been made. For more information, see the ICEpdf 1.3 Release Notes.
