  • Added
    Adds biometric properties on PSPDFDrawView: pointSequences, pressureList, timePoints, touchRadii and inputMethod. Calling clear on PSPDFDrawView now also clears any currently collected biometric data. (#19800)
  • Changed
    Marks the inherited initializer -[PSPDFMenuItem initWithTitle:action:] as unavailable because it cannot be used with this class. (#19841)

See the announcement post.

In preparation for iOS 12, this version of PSPDFKit now drops support for iOS 9. It also requires and is built with Xcode 9.4 (9F1027a). The new Image Documents component, which enables you to keep PSPDFImageDocuments editable even after saving, requires an updated license.

We prepared a migration guide to help you with some of the API changes in this version.

    Improves state restoration to restore and persist selected annotations. (#14935)
  • Changed
    Improves support for Dynamic Type, particularly for larger accessibility sizes. (#14788)
  • Changed
    Improves the layout of the stamps grid, to always look reasonably dense, while keeping the stamps big enough to read. (#13675)
  • Changed
    Changes the default state of the Store Signature checkbox to be disabled to not store the created signature without users explicitly checking it. (#15250)
  • Changed
    Makes selection experience more consistent across platforms. (#14729)
  • Changed
    Makes the custom stamp option in the stamps UI more apparent. (#1824)

  • Changed
    Improves XFDF output by omiting opacity if set to the default (1.0). (#15354)
  • Changed
    Improves rendering behavior for stamp annotations. Stamps are keeping their aspect ratio on resizing now. Stamps created with PSPDFKit now always use the same rendering, no matter if they were just created or after being saved in the document. The subject of stamps is now always rendered in uppercase characters. Custom stamps are now sized-to-fit before adding them to the document. (#1824)
  • Added
    Adds annotation name to Instant JSON. Also renamed pspdfkit/file name to filename to prevent collisions. (#14856)
  • Added
    Adds better detection for standard stamp subjects for Instant JSON. (#14919)

7.5.1 - 25 Apr 2018

PSPDFKitUI

  • Added
    Adds a signer subclassing hook to PSPDFSignatureViewController, enabling setting the certificate used for digital signing programmatically. This makes it possible to only allow the user to create a digital signature, instead of an ink signature. (#14846)

  • API
    Removes the tapGesture property on PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewController and the class no longer conforms to UIGestureRecognizerDelegate. (#5721)
  • API
    PSPDFPageView is no longer guaranteed to conform to PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewControllerDelegate. (#5721)
  • API
    Deprecates shouldBeginEditModeWhenPresented on PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewController, and showNoteControllerForAnnotation:showKeyboard:animated: in favor of showNoteControllerForAnnotation:animated: on PSPDFPageView, as choosing to show the keyboard is now decided based on heuristics, if the user might want to start editing. (#14205)
  • Added
    Adds UI to PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewController that enables the user to see existing reviews for a comment, add their own review status, or change their review status. (#14421)
  • Added

  • Added
    Adds showing and adding annotation replies in PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewController. Replies will no longer be shown on the page. (#5721)
  • Added
    Adds support for -[PSPDFConfiguration scrollOnTapPageEndEnabled] in page curl layouts. (#13302)
  • Changed
    Improves PSPDFPageModeAutomatic behavior in connection with PSPDFPageTransitionScrollContinuous. This now always prefers single pages to take better use of the available screen real estate. (#14822)
  • Changed
    Improves the layout of the search view controller on devices with bottom safe area insets. (#12969)
  • Changed
    Improves type safety by removing the __kindof type annotation from -[PSPDFDrawView annotations], -[PSPDFPageView passthroughViewsForPopoverController], and -[PSPDFPageView selectedAnnotations]. This only affects Objective-C. (#14490)
  • Changed
    Changing page by tapping on page edges is now disabled by default. To enable this, change PSPDFConfiguration.scrollOnTapPageEndEnabled to YES. (#14418)
  • Changed
    Ensures that PSPDFAnalyticsEventNameAnnotationCreationModeExit is always logged. (#14839)
  • Changed
    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)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue that could result in a crash when the size class changes while in a page curl layout. (#14555)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue that makes the page curl left or right align pages even though it is in single page mode. (#14555)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue that triggered a page change animation in page curl in some cases even though the page was already visible. (#14528)

    Fixes an issue where pages were not animating into place when showing or hiding the inspector. (#13627)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where paginated layouts would drift by a fraction of a point with every page if PSPDFViewController is set to a non-integer size in the direction of scrolling. (#14543)
  • Fixed
    Fixes annotations shown as overlays (notes) not respecting the Invisible, Hidden, and NoView flags. (#5721)

PSPDFKit

  • API
    Deprecates PSPDFAnnotationOptionUserCreatedKey. (#14669)
  • API
    Renames PSPDFSignatureHashAlgorithmSHA386 to PSPDFSignatureHashAlgorithmSHA384 which is actually the correct name. (#13932)
  • API
    tryLoadAnnotationsFromFileWithError: has been removed from PSPDFFileAnnotationProvider. Use loadAnnotationsWithError: instead to customize annotation loading. (#14570)
  • 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)
  • Added
    Adds createdAt, updatedAt and creatorName to Instant JSON. (#14443)
  • Added
    Adds isReply and inReplyToAnnotation properties on PSPDFAnnotation. (#5721)

  • Changed
    Performance improvements for documents with many data sources. (#14651)
  • Changed
    Removing an annotation with removeAnnotations:options: on PSPDFAnnotationManager or PSPDFDocument now also removes replies to that annotation. (#14385)
  • Changed
    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)
  • Fixed
    Fixes a crash that could happen during application termination. (#14483)
  • Fixed
    Fixes a lock inversion when setting up the document providers. (#14525)

  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where some PSPDFDocumentSecurityOptions initializers would sometimes return nil. (#14646)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where the documents features sometimes returned an incorrect value when called right after creating a PSPDFDocument. (#14574)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where using a custom bookmark provider with readonly documents disabled adding and editing bookmarks. (#14574)
  • Fixed
    Fixes animated GIF images support in the gallery. (#13897)
  • Fixed
    Fixes document corruption issue when document has a header and is incrementally saved. (#14249)
  • Fixed
    Fixes pages not being centered when zooming is disabled in landscape. (#14091)

Instant

  • Changed
    Improves type safety by removing the __kindof type annotation from -[PSPDFInstantDocumentDescriptor annotationWithIdentifier:forDocument:error:]. This only affects Objective-C. (#14490)

  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where pages had a gap between them in page curl layout. (#13329)

PSPDFKit

  • Added
    Adds PSPDFAESCryptoDataSink. (#13912)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where the deletion of an annotation could not be undone properly. Important: Calling removeAnnotations:options: on a PSPDFFileAnnotationProvider no longer posts PSPDFAnnotationChangedNotification! Deleted annotations are still being returned from dirtyAnnotations until the next save — like before. They are, however, not returned from annotationsForPageAtIndex: anymore. This behavior is also far less surprising. (#14305)
  • Fixed
    Fixes a document corruption bug when the document has a header and is incrementally saved. (#14249)
  • Fixed
    Fixes Catalog "XFDF Annotation Provider, Encrypted" example. (#13912)

    Fixes issue where pdfId was required when importing a Instant JSON document. (#14494)
  • Fixed
    Fixes potential deadlocks during annotation rendering. (#14534)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where opening large documents with marked content used very large amounts of memory. (#14415)
  • Fixed
    Fixes potential deadlocks when opening a lot of documents. (#14503)
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where PSPDFFile.fileData did not lazily memory map the file data when being called from user code. (#14539)

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
    The prefersStatusBarHidden property in the PSPDFStyleable protocol has been renamed to forcesStatusBarHidden to be distinct from the closely related UIViewController method of the same name.
  • Changed
    It is now possible to show color presents on PSPDFAnnotationStyleViewController, even if color and opacity settings are disabled. Color presets can still be hidden by adjusting typesShowingColorPresets. (#4108)
  • Changed
    Accessibility and voice over support has been improved on some of our key UI elements. (#3834)
  • Changed
    The author username is now requested earlier and managed via the new PSPDFUsernameHelper class.
  • Changed
    The border radius of PSPDFSearchHighlightView is now dynamically calculated based on the current zoom level and can be configured via cornerRadiusProportion.
  • Changed
    PSPDFImageInfo is now much more reliable and detects more image formats.
  • Changed
    PSPDFActions nextAction is now an array to correctly reflect the PDF spec, and the whole tree is iterated as required upon execution.
  • Changed
    PSPDFRenditionAction now also exposes optional attached javascripts.
  • Changed
    The hooks for markedContentStack and shouldParseCharacter: in the PSPDFTextParser have been removed since they were very rarely used but caused a noticeable slowdown for all text extraction. If there's demand, we'll look into ways to reintroduce a similar feature with less performance impact.
  • Changed
    prefersStatusBarHidden in PSPDFStyleable has been renamed to forcesStatusBarHidden to not confuse this with properties that UIKit recently introduced.
  • Changed
    Several annotation classes have new parent types to unify certain features, such as PSPDFAssetAnnotation and PSPDFAbstractShapeAnnotation.
  • Changed
    Small UI updates across the board. (For example, dark colors are easier to see in menus.)
  • Changed
    Various lesser-used API has been redesigned or removed for better clarity.

4.4.18 - 28 Oct 2015

  • Changed

This release will be one of our last v4 releases, while v5 for iOS 9/8 is steadily nearing completion with a huge list of updates/improvements. We backported the new bezier path calculation code, so ink annotations are quite a bit faster now. There's a lot more coming soon!

  • Changed
    When invoking search, we now prioritize the current visible pages before searching the rest. Search results will show up significantly faster on complex documents. (Z#1829)
  • Fixed

4.4.12 - 10 Aug 2015

  • Added
    Adds Slovenian translation.
  • Changed
    Improves compatibility exporting file attachment in XFDF with certain less standard compliant readers. (Z#1610)

4.4.11 - 31 Jul 2015

  • Added
    Adds Czech, Greek and Finnish translations and updates various other localization details.
  • API
    The rotationLock has been removed. Subclass PSPDFViewController and override the rotation methods and/or implement supportedInterfaceOrientationsForWindow: to lock rotation. Since PSPDFKit doesn't own the application, yet this requires hooks to your app delegate, the previous implementation was flawed and subsequently removed.
  • Changed
    Allow rendering the page to larger sizes when aspect ratio is preserved. (#3528)

4.4.7 - 24 Jun 2015

WWDC week! We're hard at work to make sure PSPDFKit is a good citizen on iOS 9 and also grilled the UIKit engineers in San Francisco. This release features various first updates for the iOS 9.0b1 and Xcode 7. As usual, our strategy is to keep a stable PSPDFKit 4.4.x that works with SDK 8 (Xcode 6.3.2), supporting iOS 7, 8 and 9 (with some exceptions, like multitasking) - while at the same time we are also working on PSPDFKit 5, made for Xcode 7 and iOS 8+9. Expect PSPDFKit 5 some time in September before the iOS 9 GM.

  • Changed
    Updates OpenSSL to 1.0.2c. (None of the security updates affects PSPDFKit, but it's a good habit to keep things up-to-date)
  • API
    pathShadowForView: now returns an UIBezierPath object instead of a CGPathRef object.
  • API
    showsScrollIndicators has been split into showsHorizontalScrollIndicator and showsVerticalScrollIndicator for a more fine-grained control. (#3191)

  • Fixed
    Fixes issues with certain passwords with non-ascii characters and PDF 1.7 files. (#3166)
  • Changed
    If annotation rendering is disabled, we hide these options from the share menu. (print/mail/open in) (#3202)
  • Changed
    Text handling for zoomed in pages is now a lot better, thanks to an unnamed UIKit engineer in the labs. (#2763)
  • Changed
    Ensures that popup annotations don’t get a default border. (#3214)
  • Changed
    Improves search performance and layout related to UI updating when using the popover/modal view. (#3190, #3212)
  • Changed
    Improves animation for gesture-based view controller dismissal and the HUD. (#3109)
  • Changed
    Various performance improvements related to multiple gallery items when zooming/mirroring. (Z#938)
  • Changed
    Improves child view controller usage detection and contentInset calculation for certain edge cases. (#2998)
  • Changed
    Hiding the annotation toolbar no longer automatically dismisses any visible popover. (Z#1366)
  • Changed
    Resizing annotation as a set (multiselect) now better handles free text annotations. (#1982)
  • Changed
    Improves the logic that positions signatures and better deals with edge cases like incorrect PDF coordinates. (#3113)
  • Changed
    Ensures that upon PSPDFViewController dismissal, the HUD is always visible. (#3227)

3.6.0 - 16 Mar 2014

See the announcement post.

We're proud to ship the next milestone of PSPDFKit. Version 3.6 features a completely new annotation toolbar, search within annotation text, note annotations that show up in the thumbnails and countless other improvements. This release has been fully tested with Xcode 5.1 and iOS 7.1. We now require at least Xcode 5.0.2 and SDK 7 to compile and have dropped support for Xcode 4.6 (Apple no longer accepts apps built with SDK 6/Xcode 4.6) Applications built with PSPDFKit will still run and work great under iOS 6.

  • Changed
    Fully compatible and tested with iOS 7.1 and Xcode 5.1.
  • Changed
    God dag! We've added Swedish to the list of presupplied localization files.
  • Changed
    All-new flexible annotation toolbar (PSPDFFlexibleAnnotationToolbar) that can be dragged to be vertical or horizontal. See PSPDFAnnotationToolbarType in the PSPDFAnnotationBarButtonItem to optionally keep using the old annotation toolbar.
  • Changed
    PSPDFKit Complete can now create digital signatures. This feature is still in beta - we need more documents to test all possible conditions. If you're having issues with this, please contact us so we can further increase the test coverage.
  • Changed
    Text selection now supports text-to-speech on iOS 7+. See PSPDFSpeechSynthesizer for details and options to customize the language.
  • Changed
    Forms on iPhone/iOS 7 now have an automatic zoom feature that makes it a lot easier to enter text.
  • Changed
    Search now also includes annotation and form element contents. This is especially useful for note annotations and forms. (PSPDFKit Basic/Complete)
  • Changed
    Search results are now hidden on page tap (unless that tap finds an action like selecting an annotation.)
  • Changed
    Note annotations are now always rendered at the same size and also visible in the thumbnails.
  • Changed
    PDF annotation writing will now be faster and produce a more compact trailer, reducing target file size.
  • Added
    Adds support for mailto: links with multiple email addresses (also for CC and BCC).
  • Changed
    Saving will now use the correct z-index for annotations and forms in the same ordering as they are added. Saving changed objects will no longer change the z-ordering.
  • Changed
    Simple JavaScript actions like printing, alert boxes or adding form values now work. If you have a use case for that, please contact us at support@pspdfkit.com.
  • Changed
    The XFDF parser now parses basic rich text strings as used in Acrobat and keeps color and font informations.
  • Changed
    Increases contrast for the selection color on form choice list-boxes.
  • Changed
    PSPDFTextSelectionView now allows UIAppearance to customize selectionColor and selectionAlpha.
  • Changed
    The PSPDFActivityViewController now checks if printing is allowed for the document before even showing the print option.
  • Changed
    No longer ends the text view edit mode when zooming on iOS 7 (flat mode) and above.
  • Changed
    File annotations are now evaluated lazily, which improves startup performance for documents with many such annotations.
  • Changed
    Note annotations now also create popup annotation on PDF saving. These are optional but increase compatibility with certain less standard-compliant 3rd-party software.
  • Changed
    The behavior of the pdfViewController:didTapOnPage:View:atPoint: has been updated when no PSPDFPageView was hit to return nil here, and coordinates relative to the current PSPDFViewController.
  • Changed
    The PSPDFThumbnailBar has a new parameter to optionally enable the page labels: showPageLabels (defaults to NO).
  • Changed
    Many improvements related to PDF AcroForm handling and input validation.
  • Changed
    Calls to didHidePageView: and didShowPageView: of views with the PSPDFAnnotationViewProtocol are now properly balanced.
  • Changed
    The text parser now has a more sophisticated text shadow/overlay detection, which improves search results by removing duplicated glyphs.
  • Changed
    The gallery has a new mode that enables live-blur behind the content (see blurEnabled on PSPDFGalleryViewController).
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where the popover might open at an unexpected location when using the inline multimedia system with the popover:true parameter.
  • Changed
    Font annotations are now rendered with their AP stream for greater document accuracy.
  • Changed
    Annotations now support the additional action mouse up event.
  • Changed
    Greatly improves speed for the XFDF image deserialization process.
  • API
    PSPDFKit now requires the Accelerate.framework. If you're using the PSPDFKit.xcconfig file, you don't need to change anything.
  • API
    Search related methods are now in the new searchHighlightViewManager property of PSPDFViewController.
  • API
    The HUD and related views have been reorganized. You might have to update some calls (some views are now within HUDView)
  • API
    PSPDFProgressHUD has been replaced with the all-new PSPDFStatusHUD, which features a modern iOS 7 design and an improved API.
  • API
    PSPDFDocument should be treated as an immutable object (apart from settings). Thus, the files and fileURL properties have been made readonly, and appendFile: has been removed. Create a new document with the new files/data objects instead. Use the new helper documentByAppendingObjects: to create a modified document with a new file or data objects.
  • API
    The PSPDFAnnotationManager now supports various protocol strings, thus the property protocolString has been renamed to protocolStrings and is now an NSArray that takes NSStrings. We've added embed:// as a second, neutral protocol format.
  • API
    The textSearch class has been moved from PSPDFDocument to PSPDFViewController.
  • API
    PSPDFNoteAnnotationViewFixedSize has been removed. Notes are now drawn with a fixed size, however you can define the bounding box to whatever you like. We recommend using 32px, but this value is being ignored by both PSPDFKit and Adobe Acrobat. Other, less capable renderers like Apple Preview.app might use the value, so 32px is a good value - but also depends how large or small your document is.
  • API
    The PSPDFSignatureViewController no longer dismisses itself. Dismiss the controller in the delegate callbacks.
  • API
    Code and subclassing hooks that could be used to change the PSPDFScrobbleBar frame have been moved to PSPDFHUDView.

    Fixes an issue related to annotation fetching and the pageRange feature of PSPDFDocument.
  • Fixed
    Fixes multiple issues related to the ink eraser.

3.3.0 - 29 Dec 2013

See the announcement post.

Happy holidays!

PSPDFKit now requires iOS 6+ and Xcode 5. Keep using PSPDFKit 3.2.x if you're still building with Xcode 4.6 or need to support iOS 5. Apple will enforce usage of Xcode 5 starting February 1st. (https://developer.apple.com/news/index.php?id=12172013a) Removing iOS 5 resulted in deleting almost 10.000 lines of code - which will give you a smaller, faster and more efficient binary.

The binary is now again fully universal including armv7, armv7s, arm64, i386 and x86_64. The separate iOS 7 only (64 bit) library variant has been removed.

PSPDFKit Complete now supports PDF form signature validation and thus links with OpenSSL. There is an optional build without OpenSSL that disables these cryptographic signature checks.

  • Changed
    Localization! PSPDFKit now ships with English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Danish, German, Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.
  • Added
    Adds preliminary compatibility with Xcode 5.1 and iOS 7.1b2.
  • Changed
    Refreshed visuals for both iOS 6 and iOS 7. The icons are now much more polished and can be better customized. The remaining icons that were drawn in code are now all inside the PSPDFKit.bundle.
  • Changed
    PSPDFKit Complete/Enterprise can now validate cryptographic signatures (unless you use the build without OpenSSL)
  • Changed
    PSPDFAESCryptoDataProvider now supports the popular RNCryptor data format: https://github.com/rnapier/RNCryptor/wiki/Data-Format (It autodetects the legacy format and supports that as well)
  • Changed
    Finally fully supports the new UIViewControllerBasedStatusBarAppearance. (we now support both modes in iOS 7)
  • Changed
    The PSPDFAnnotationToolbar now displays the style picker for text markup annotations (highlights).
  • Changed
    The PSPDFGalleryViewController now supports local/remote video and audio files next to images.
  • Changed
    The internal PSPDFWebViewController now shows a progress bar, much like Safari on iOS 7.
  • Changed
    Improves automatic font resizing for single line text field form entries.
  • Changed
    Improved support for additionalActions and nextAction to add actions to all annotation types.
  • Changed
    API Change: PSPDFTextSelectionMenuActionWikipediaAsFallback has been renamed to PSPDFTextSelectionMenuActionWikipedia. Since checking for a word in UIReferenceLibraryViewController can be unpredictably slow as of iOS 7.0.3, we had to remove this feature. Define will now always be displayed and you can optionally enable Wikipedia as well. The new default will omit Wikipedia by default.
  • Changed
    Don't show the PSPDFWebViewController bottom toolbar on iPhone if there are no availableActions defined.
  • Changed
    Allow detection for a PSPDFKit signature and blocks the "Copy" feature if detected. Will also be saved into the PDF as proprietary extension.

    YouTube: Add support for http://youtu.be short-form URLs for embedding.
  • Changed
    The note icon name is now properly serialized when using the XFDF annotation provider.

  • Changed
    Annotation and outline classes have been optimized to require less memory and reuse more objects internally.
  • Changed
    Lots of code cleaning, improved documentation and some reorganization. The binary is now smaller and compiles faster.

    Use blurry background for UIPopoverController in the stamp section.
  • Changed
    The annotation creation menu now only shows the most important annotation types; customize via createAnnotationMenuTypes in the PSPDFViewController.
  • Removed
    Removes the IDNSDK to get a smaller binary.
  • Changed
    When saving text form elements, the AP stream is now included in the PDF. This fixes issues with Acrobat where the content would only be visible when the text field is active.
  • Fixed
    Fixes a rare crash in (poly)line point calculation if the points are on top of each other.
  • Fixed
    Fixes an edge case where the text field would loose focus after the note annotation controller has been dismissed because of tapping into another text field.

  • Changed
    Next/Prev now works across multiple pages and also includes choice form elements.

    Text field form elements now resize as we are typing and better render multi-lined text.
  • Changed
    PDF Signature Form elements are now tappable and will offer to add a ink annotation as signature.

    API change: Renamed showNewSignatureMenuAtPoint:animated: with showNewSignatureMenuAtRect:animated:. Use a rect with size zero to get the previous behavior.
  • API
    Some subclassing hooks that have been declared but weren't called have been properly removed.
  • Changed
    Undo/Redo is disabled by default on old devices to improve performance. (Notably, the iPad 1 with iOS 5.)
  • Changed
    Improves error handling for corrupt or missing PDFs.
  • Changed
    Using the HSV color picker while brightness is set all the way to 0% (black) will do the smart thing to switch to the pure color with 100% brightness.

  • Added
    Adds a versioning system for PSPDFKit.bundle. Make sure you always use the bundle we ship with PSPDFKit.
  • Added
    Adds a boxRect:forPage:error: method to PSPDFDocument to easily get a different box rect for the defined page.
  • Changed
    Gallery now supports animated GIFs and downloads images even when the app is in background.
  • Changed
    Improves default header color for the mail view controller.

  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where "Clear All" deleted all annotations, even those not displayed in the annotation table view.

    Faster scrolling, new default page rendering strategy: PSPDFPageRenderingModeThumbnailIfInMemoryThenFullPage
  • Changed
    Improves text selection drawing and text selection menu placing. The few cases where the menu could overlap the selection have been fixed.

  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue with single page documents, forced two-page-mode and pageCurl.
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue where under certain conditions the navigationBar was not displayed initially.

3.1.1 - 19 Oct 2013

  • Changed
    Restores compatibility when compiling with Xcode 4.6.
  • Changed
    Various smaller improvements to the new image gallery.
  • Changed
    Various smaller performance improvements, moved some more work off the main thread.
  • Changed
    API cleanup for PSPDFDocumentProvider.
  • Changed
    No longer blocks the UI when annotations are still loading during a touchDown event.
  • Fixed
    Fixes an UX issue where dismissing the activity popover in the web view controller via a touch on the dimming view sometimes required a second touch on the action button to re-show.
  • Fixed
    Fixes an issue when adding annotation views for invalid rects.

3.1.0 - 18 Oct 2013

  • Changed
    Brand-new image gallery (define a region in the pdf to be covered by a smooth gallery). Allows configuration via inline-pdf or external JSON.
  • Changed
    Use menu-based annotation manipulation for text markup annotations.
  • Changed
    The way how the document UID is generated has been changed. Previously, for files it used the full app path. However since the app UID could change after an upgrade, we had to change this behavior. This is only important if you used bookmarks or allowed annotations saving into the internal storage - not for embedded annotation data. Set the global variable PSPDFUseLegacyUIDGenerationMethod to YES to continue using the old path. Those files are in Library/PrivateDocuments. You might want to write a custom migration step to rename the custom data paths from the old UID to the new UID system. The PSPDFUseLegacyUIDGenerationMethod can be changed at any time to switch between old and new UID (generate a new PSPDFDocument instance to force UID regeneration).
  • Changed
    The file-based annotation backing store by default no longer saves link annotations but instead merges the saved annotations and the links from the file. This improves performance for PDFs that have lots of internal links (our current way of saving starts to get slow once there are more than 10.000 objects). In most cases, you don't need to care and your save file will be migrated automatically. If you rely on custom link annotations being saved/deleted, you need to set the new saveableTypes property of the fileAnnotationProvider back to the old default PSPDFAnnotationTypeAll.
  • Changed
    The undo/redo buttons are now updated immediately after adding annotations.
  • Changed
    The interactivePopGesture (new on iOS 7) is now disabled while we're drawing to prevent accidental usage.

    The PSPDFViewController will now properly clean up state from the annotation creation when dropped from user code while the toolbar is in drawing mode.
  • Changed
    The outline controller now properly shows page destinations above page 10.000.
  • Changed
    Hides a harmless log warning when PSPDFKit tried to render an annotation with an empty width/height.
  • Changed
    When undo is disabled, the undo/redo buttons are now properly hidden when leaving the drawing mode.
  • Changed
    No longer draws the arrow when flattening choice form elements.
  • Changed
    Restores sound annotations that were added via the pspdfkit:// protocol.
