Quick PDF Library 8.12 Released, Includes 64-bit Compatibility

October 19, 2011

The final version of Quick PDF Library 8.12 has been released and is ready for download from our updates page. This version includes 64-bit compatibility for the Delphi, ActiveX and DLL editions of our PDF SDK, as well as Delphi XE2 support and much more. Visit the product updates page to download this new version and see a full list of the changes.

Download 8.12 from our Product Updates page

Highlights

  • 64-bit compatibility for the ActiveX, DLL and Delphi editions of Quick PDF Library
  • Delphi XE2 support
  • Embed OpenType fonts
  • Updated import files for Visual FoxPro and PowerBASIC
  • 30+ bug fixes and enhancements, plus 5 new functions

Special note: you may notice that the installer size for Quick PDF Library 8.12 at 25.2 MB is larger than previous versions. The increase in the installer size is due to the addition of the files required for 64-bit support. For example, for the ActiveX edition, while previously there was just a 2.32 MB DLL called QuickPDFAX0812.dll now there is an additional DLL called QuickPDF64AX0812.dll. Luckily you don’t need to distribute the full 25.2 MB with your applications, you just take out the individual files that you need and distribute those with your applications.

Feedback! Any feedback large or small is appreciated. We’ll shortly be planning the next round of exciting new features for Quick PDF Library, so we’d really like to know what you want to see added to the SDK. Don’t be shy, email us at support@quickpdflibrary.com and have your say.

Upgrading to Quick PDF Library 8

September 6, 2011

Quick PDF Library 8 is a major new version of the product which means that the upgrade process is different from the minor version upgrade process, namely, upgrades aren’t free unless you meet certain requirements.

Free upgrades

Customers who purchased version 7 of Quick PDF Library on or after the 1st of June, 2011 (within 90 days of version 8’s release) or who own an active Premium Upgrade Protection subscription are eligible for free upgrades from version 7 to version 8.

Contact our sales team if you fall into this category and we’ll help you out.

Purchase an upgrade

An upgrade from version 7 to version 8 can be purchased at a discount (40% off) through our online store. Look for the products that include “Upgrade License” and “7.x to 8.x” in the product name and then choose which version of those products describes your upgrade situation.

For example, if you own a Single Developer License + Standard Upgrade Protection for version 7 of Quick PDF Library then you will need to purchase the Single Developer Upgrade License + Standard Upgrade Protection (7.x to 8.x) product in order to upgrade to version 8 — though you can choose to buy the Premium Upgrade Protection version of that product if you prefer.

Online Store – Quick PDF Library

Contact our sales team if you have any questions about upgrading.

Quick PDF Library Developer Guide

May 4, 2011

Quick PDF Library has an extensive function reference but we’ve received quite a few requests for a developer guide that provides details on how all of the functions work together. So we have written a Developer Guide for Quick PDF Library. The first public draft of the Developer Guide can be downloaded from here:

We will update the Developer Guide based on your feedback — so let us know what is missing and what you think could be improved. We’re hoping to release the final version of the Developer Guide with version 7.25 (beta 2 should be out any day now).
