Australian-based Debenu has released a paid add-on to its flagship developer product, Debenu Quick PDF Library. Known as Debenu PDF Viewer SDK, the add-on works with the core technology to quickly add PDF viewing functionality to Windows-based applications.
While it was already possible to build a PDF viewer using only the main product, the add-on essentially does most of the work in advance. As such, it stands to save developers time and effort.
‘Requests for additional functionality to be built into the PDF SDK are commonplace as developers want to be more responsive to their end users. It is no coincidence that our increase in feature requests coincides with higher demand because of the library’s functionality, price point and license terms.’ says Karl De Abrew, Debenu CEO. ‘If you develop applications with PDF functionality you choose Debenu as your SDK.’
‘Our approach to creating user friendly software is to innovate where needed and that is how we are driving development.’ Rowan Hanna, Debenu CTO, explained. ‘We are excited to release Debenu PDF Viewer SDK. We think customers will embrace this release and future add-ons planned for later in the year. We are looking forward to helping all our current and new customers get their applications to market faster and easier.’
The add-on features fast, high-quality PDF rendering, compliance with the PDF ISO 32000 (PDF 1.7) standard, and support for encryption, along with a wide range of fonts, compression schemes and color spaces.
Debenu PDF Viewer SDK is available commercially — albeit royalty free — as an ActiveX component for Windows development. As such, it is compatible with C#, C++, Delphi, Visual Basic and various other programming languages.
