Fedora Update Notification

Name        : itext
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.1.7
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://www.lowagie.com/iText/
Summary     : A Free Java-PDF library
Description :
iText is a library that allows you to generate PDF files on the fly. The iText
classes are very useful for people who need to generate read-only, platform
independent documents containing text, lists, tables and images. The library is
especially useful in combination with Java(TM) technology-based Servlets: The
look and feel of HTML is browser dependent; with iText and PDF you can control
exactly how your servlet's output will look.

Update Information:

iText 2.1.7 is an intermediary release fixing some problems with iText 2.1.6:
o PdfPKCS7: More robust timestamp extraction.  o PdfPKCS7: Ripemd didn't work,
some kind of signed attributes couldn't be verified correctly.  o PdfStamperImp:
Avoid accessing directly member variables from other classes.  o PdfSmartCopy:
Check deeper for comparison.  o Rotation in PdfPCell: take mod before making
positive.  Changes made by Kevin Day  o Fix NPE when parsing Type 0 fonts
without a ToUnicode map (I've seen some winding font entries stored as Type 0
instead of TT in some pdf files)  o Adjusted unicode to cid mapping so it takes
the first one found from DocumentFont. This is just a band-aid, as it doesn't
address cases where multiple cids may map to single unicode value.  o Fix byte
to int sign conversion  o Enhance text parsing to handle fonts with encoding but
no ToUnicode map. Ref Bug #2792227  o PdfPRow: Cheating a little bit more to
deal with a floating point problem (until we can solve this in a more structural
way)  o PdfPTable/PdfPRow/PdfPCell: Fix a bug for the new rowspan funtionality
o PdfStamperImp: Solved NPE problems with producer string  o Image in Chunk:
Taking into account the top border width of the Image in case the leading has to
be changed to accommodate for the image height.  o RtfList: The public void
writeContent(final OutputStream result) method needs to output
RtfParagraph.PARAGRAPH_DEFAULTS after every list. Patch posted anonymously to SF
(#2809140).  o RtfFont: When adding a paragraph, table cell or other Phrase
without specifing the font, by default the "unknown" font is created in the font
table. Like: {\f3\froman\fcharset0 unknown;} Word 2000 doesn't recognise the
unknown font and waits indefinately. Patch provided by M. Smith on the SF
Bugtracker (#2807621)   This iText release brings plenty of bug fixes and new
functionality such as rowspan for PdfPTable. The full changelog can be found at
