See the announcement post.

PSPDFKit now requires and is built with Xcode 12.0.

PSPDFKit, Instant, and PSPDFKitOCR can now be integrated into your projects via Swift Package Manager. To learn more check out our new Swift Package Manager integration guide.

Xcode 12 automatically handles the dSYMs and BCSymbolMaps in XCFrameworks, therefore the strip-framework.sh script is no longer required. It will be removed in a future update. Please see our PSPDFKit 10 for iOS migration guide to learn about the appropriate migration strategy.

See the announcement post.

This release adds the Reader View component, as well as Office Files Support. If you would like to obtain PSPDFKit Server or add either to your license, ping our sales team to receive a quote.

In preparation for iOS 14, this version of PSPDFKit now drops support for iOS 11. It also requires and is built with Xcode 11.5 (11E608c). PSPDFKit and PSPDFKitUI now also come with a stable module interface. This enables linking with PSPDFKit frameworks, even if the Swift compiler version used in your application differs from the one we used to build the frameworks.

This release has some smaller breaking API changes. Please see our migration guide for details.

  • Added

    Adds explanatory text at the bottom of PDFDocumentSecurityViewController when SDK.Setting.honorDocumentPermissions is disabled to clarify that restricting permissions will not change behavior in the app. To hide this message, use setLocalizationDictionary or setLocalizationClosure to use an empty string for the key DocumentSecurity_PermissionsDisabledExplanation. (#23857)

    Ensures that the optional analytics provider tracks log deletion for all cases. (#14817)

  • Removed

    Removes ellipses in menu items (UIMenuItem) because there is no standard convention for this on iOS and space can be scarce. For example ‘Inspector…’ is now ‘Inspector’. (#14235)

  • API

    Deprecates PSPDFTextBlock.glyphs, PSPDFWord.glyphs, and PSPDFSelectionState.selectedGlyphs in favor of NSRange-based APIs. (#14606)

  • API

    Adds isGenerated to PSPDFGlyph to check if the glyph is an autogenerated filler. (#14606)

  • API

    PSPDFGlyph.indexOnPage is not -1 to indicate that it is a generated filler. Use PSPDFGlyph.isGenerated instead. indexOnPage can now be used to uniquely identify a glyph on a page, and is the index of the glyph in the PSPDFTextParser.glyphs array. (#14606)

    The relationship between PSPDFXFDFAnnotationProvider and PSPDFFileAnnotationProvider is now more explicit. If you use XFDF for form filling, you now need to keep around both providers. Furthermore, the annotation manager now only saves into the first annotation provider implementing the save method. Previously all were called, which could have led to incorrect results. (#14323)

5.0.0 - 23 Oct 2015

See the announcement post.

PSPDFKit 5 is a major new version, introducing our own renderer and focusing on improving performance. It requires Xcode 7.1 and is compatible with iOS 8.0 - 9.1. This release is a huge usability improvement with Swift but also Objective-C, as we annotated all headers with generics. This release now shares our new core with our Android SDK to further improve quality and performance.

  • Changed

    PSPDFKit now uses its own PDF renderer and no longer uses Apple’s Core Graphics renderer, which means better performance, stability and quality. (#3737)

  • Changed

    Undo and redo now remember individual lines drawn instead of the previous behavior where undo removed the whole annotation, once committed. (#2825)

  • Changed

    The tabbed bar has been completely redesigned and now supports animations and reordering, not to mention it being much prettier. (#665)

  • Changed

    View controllers are now presented using UIPresentationController and are much easier to handle and dismiss. (#3519)

    • Changed

      We removed the popoverController and halfModalController properties, as these are now custom presentation styles.

  • Changed

    Popovers are no longer dismissed on rotation. (#3519)

  • Changed

    iOS 8 adaptivity is fully supported: view controllers swap between being popovers, half modal or full screen depending on context. (#3743)

    • Changed

      A new presentation option has been added to prevent view controllers from adapting their presentation style: PSPDFPresentationNonAdaptiveKey.

  • Changed

    The default presentation style has changed for presentViewController:options:animated:sender:completion: from PSPDFViewController and PSPDFPresentationActions. The default is now to use the presented view controller’s modalPresentationStyle, similar to the old PSPDFPresentationStyleForceModal style, which has been removed.

    • Changed

      To restore the equivalent of PSPDFKit’s previous default behavior (using either a popover or full screen, depending on the space available), set the presented view controller’s modalPresentationStyle to UIModalPresentationPopover.

  • Changed

    The annotation toolbar now automatically adapts its items depending on the available screen real estate. This change comes with a new API that allows setting multiple toolbar configurations amongst which the toolbar picks the optimal layout. (#3950)

  • Changed

    The free text input accessory view has been updated to show popover pickers whenever possible, with a fallback to the half modal inspector, if vertical space is tight. (#3987)

    • Changed

      Note: We noticed some input accessory view resizing issues on iPad Air 2 Simulator. We could not reproduce the same problems on actual devices.

  • Changed

    We’re using UIAlertController and UISearchController everywhere, replacing the older deprecated API for further view controller unification. (#3381)

  • Changed

    Automatic double page mode is smarter, comparing the aspect ratios of the view and the document and only showing two pages if they fit without too much shrinking. Automatic mode is now the default on iPhone too, but since two pages are only shown in large views the behavior will be similar.

  • Changed

    By default, page thumbnails are now sized adaptively to comfortably fill the available space.

  • Changed

    Instead of CGPDFDataProvider we now have a new PSPDFDataProvider protocol, which finally allows writing as well. (#3690)

    • Changed

      PSPDFAESCryptoDataProvider has been updated to allow writing annotations back into the secure storage.

  • Changed

    Safari view controller is used instead of PSPDFWebViewController on iOS 9.

  • Changed

    PSPDFScrobbleBar has been renamed to PSPDFScrubberBar to better express its purpose.

  • Changed

    Querying for the annotation author name has been moved to before the annotation toolbar is displayed. (#3544)

  • Changed

    Annotation creation can now be prevented on select PDF pages by adding a boolean key to the page dictionary (see allowAnnotationCreation on PSPDFPageInfo). (#4308)

  • Changed

    PSPDFAnnotationStateManager now supports multiple delegates and the delegate protocol gained some new methods. (#3607)

  • Changed

    The color menu is now represented visually, and uses the style manager color presets. (#2802, #2890)

  • Changed

    Switching between regular and callout styles for text annotations now produces better results and has been made easier with a redesigned UI. (#3664 and #3859)

  • Changed

    The annotation stream now gets properly reset when an annotation is modified, preventing stale content from being rendered on screen. (#3817)

  • Changed

    PSPDFDocumentActionExecutor’s presentationController has been renamed to sourceViewController to better describe its purpose and avoid confusion with UIPresentationController.

  • Changed
