------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are very pleased to announce the release of Version 4
of our best selling PDF-XChange and Tools end user products.

Version 4 brings new features and an enhanced interface - but retains its fast PDF creation and our world beating file optimisation and compression features.

The feature highlights include :

PDF/A file format support - this new standard was devised to ensure that file content is such that the file will always be viewable by any conforming reader in years to come - and its content appear exactly as created - certain multimedia content is not allowed and also all fonts must be embedded in the file.

If you would like more info on PDF/A - please contact us.

PDF-XChange V4 (Standard and PRO)

Header-Footer Support - define and generate Headers and Footers automatically for all your files.
AES Encryption - We have extended the security options by adding the AES file encryption method.
n-UP page formatting - Let PDF-XChange organise and output your pages using the n-UP publishing format
Booklet Mode - Always wanted to print multiple pages in the correct order, resized to a single large page format then fold and guillotine as book publishers do ?
Preview and rescale pages - Visually view and adjust the page size before output to PDF via the preview window !

PDF-Tools V4

The changes to PDF-Tools are minor at this time - as we prepare to migrate the functionality to our new PDF-XChange Viewer PRO - this will combine the features currently available in PDF-Tools where possible and the visual interface provided now in our PDF-XChange Viewer, making any task you wish to perform creating or Modifying your PDF's easier and more intuitive to achieve.

Currently PDF-Tools V4 gets some updates to allow pages/files to be previewed as some tasks are performed and AES encryption - we have chosen not to waste further time upgrading PDF-Tools when it will shortly be replaced by the PDF-XChange Viewer 'PRO'

Upgrade policy/Info

Update - some techincal issues have delayed the upgrade notification/facility for existing users - this, we hope is now resolved and we should be able to send out upgrade information to all registered users on February 13th and 14th.

If you have V3 of PDF-XChange or PDF-Tools and purchased on or after January 1st 2007 - you will receive a free upgrade and provided we have your current email address - you will be sent details on how to claim this before January 31st.

If you have V3 of PDF-XChange or PDF-Tools and purchased before January 1st 2007 you will be offered Version 4 for a 70% discount from the current retail price, provided we have your current email address - you will be sent details on how to claim this before January 31st.

If you have V1 or 2 of PDF-XChange or PDF-Tools you will be offered Version 4 for a 40% discount from the current retail price, provided we have your current email address - you will be sent details on how to claim this before January 31st.

This will be the final opportunity for Version 1 and 2 users to upgrade at a discounted price - all future upgrades will require a new purchase at the full retail price currently published.

PDF-XChange Viewer PRO

As indicated, above we have begun work on our much anticipated PRO version of the currently available PDF-XChange viewer. This is already arguably the fastest, smallest download and most feature rich, comprehensive PDF Viewer available today.

We are merging the functionality of PDF-Tools 4 with the Viewer and adding in many new exciting features - only possible using a visual interface.

We will release the initial versions of 'PDF-XV-PRO' in the coming month or so and, whilst it will not immediately be a full replacement for PDF-Tools,we will build on the initial functionality over the coming months and are confident it will soon be a genuine alternative to the full Adobe Acrobat product - costing $100's.

If you own PDF-XChange PRO or PDF-Tools Version 4, you will receive this automatically as a free upgrade as soon as available, otherwise we will also offer the PRO Viewer as a standalone product, initially at a discounted price at around $19.95 - rising to approx $39.95 as the full feature set is available.
