Description

We are currently using iText PDF 5.5.3. The latest version is 7.1.13. The API has changed a lot and is not backwards compatible. But it seems to be better designed and easier to work with. There is also SVG support (in case we need that).

Added new utility class PdfUtil7 which uses iText PDF 7. Functionality is similar to the existing PdfUtil class but not everything has been implemented. The SCAN-B report (#1190) has been updated to use the new implementation.
