PSPDFKit Library for .NET: Deprecation, Sunsetting, and Replacement
In May of 2022, PSPDFKit acquired ORPALIS Imaging Technologies, a leading provider of document imaging technology. ORPALIS’s flagship product, GdPicture.NET, is an all-in-one .NET SDK for OCR, barcode reading and writing, PDF rendering and compression, MS Office document conversion, document scanning, document imaging, and much more.
GdPicture.NET technology outperforms any .NET document imaging technology currently available on the market, including the core features available in PSPDFKit Library for .NET, such as OCR, PDF editing, and data extraction.
Therefore, as of 17 August 2022, we’re sunsetting PSPDFKit Library for .NET and replacing it with PSPDFKit GdPicture.NET Library.
What Does This Mean for Existing PSPDFKit Library for .NET Customers?
For PSPDFKit customers, this ultimately means a more comprehensive OCR solution, AI-based document tools, deeper PDF expertise, and access to more than 3,000 new capabilities across more than 100 new file formats.
Customers who’d like to continue using PSPDFKit Library for .NET can do so without any impact to their current product or application. We’ll continue to offer support for the duration of the license agreement, while the guides and the API reference will remain on our website.
Product updates will no longer be released, except when they’re reasonably needed to fix a bug.
Customers with an active license for PSPDFKit Library for .NET can take advantage of GdPicture.NET’s world-class technology by transferring their license to PSPDFKit GdPicture.NET Library at no extra cost for the same set of components. For example, if you licensed the OCR component on PSPDFKit Library for .NET, you’ll have access to the significantly upgraded OCR component on PSPDFKit GdPicture.NET Library. If you’re interested in transferring your license, please contact sales.
