Big Faceless Organization (BFO), provider of high quality Java software components, have enhanced the smartest Java class library on the market. Version 2.7.3 of the Big Faceless PDF Library includes heavily reworked font handling, providing enhanced performance to text extraction and PDF rendering in those slightly out of the ordinary documents.
CTO Mike Bremford, says “Font encodings have been completely reworked. Documents without embedded fonts, and those documents where the embedded fonts are non-standard, will all render accurately with this release.”
Other font-related changes will benefit users in China, Japan and Korea, where the improved support for non-Unicode encodings UCS2 or UTF16 will make legacy documents a little easier to deal with.
The upgrade will also benefit users in Eastern Europe – where improvements to the standard font classes mean it’s now possible to display Polish, Czech, Romanian, Hungarian and other ISO-8859-2 languages without embedding a font, resulting in smaller PDFs.
