Image conversions are faster for non-optimized cases. The fallback pixel-by-pixel conversion was changed: first convert the image to the screen representation and then to PDF (which is optimized).
There are also some bug fixes concerning fonts and images using multiple filters.
And for the UI: the [left arrow] in the PDFExplorer tree view now moves the selection to the parent when not opened. To me this is the expected behavior for tree views.
A comprehensive implementation for using Smalltalk images with PDFs was added to the PDF4Smalltalk library (see Images). This overdue feature was realized thanks to the encouragement of Bob Nemec, author of Report4PDF, and the generous funding from his employer, the Canadian engineering company HTS.
Gitorius is closing down. Therefore I decided to use my own webspace to host the PDF4Smalltalk documentation.
In the last 3 years, nothing much happened except for the occasional bug fix. But recently, I am more active again.
I am working on the ContentStream whith, hopefully, leads to higher level objects like texts or graphical elements instead of a stream of graphics operators.
Since the project is on my own server now, I hope that I will program and write a bit more…
Published the first version as open source.
Started to write documentation at Origo.
Started to implement the PDF specification as replacement for the PostScript output module for smallCharts.
