Jaws Systems has announced version 2.0 of its PDF Creator software. Due for release towards the end of the year, PDF Creator 2.0 adds many enhancements including support for version 1.3 of the PDF format.
PDF Creator is designed to offer the complexity of Distiller with the ease of use of PDF Writer. The next release will be even easier to use because of its enhanced front end, according to Jaws.
As well as supporting PDF 1.3, the software supports encrypted PDF using the BSAFE Library. Also added in 2.0 is bi-cubic downsampling for creating higher-quality downsampled images and embedding of Base 14 fonts.
Pricing has not yet been announced.
