Both the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online and PDF Converter Services see many new releases each year. The most recent formal announcement was for version 9.10, but as versions 9.11 and 9.12 have been released as well, it is about time for an overview of the key changes.

Key highlights for versions 9.11 and 9.12, are as follows:

Please note that all SharePoint Online versions are numbered in the 9.X range. At the time of writing the most recent version of the on-premise software is 8.4. For those not familiar with the product, the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online is a lightweight subscription based solution that allows end-users to convert merge, split, watermark, secure, and OCR common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF using SharePoint Online through a friendly user interface or via workflows, without the need to install any client-side software or Adobe Acrobat. More details can be found on the product page .  An on-premise version for SharePoint 2007-2019 is available separately.

The Muhimbi PDF Converter Services is included in the PDF Converter for SharePoint Online, but also available as a separate subscription. Although frequently used in combination with SharePoint Online, it is a completely stand-alone product which is typically used programmatically via its REST based API, via Microsoft Flow, Azure Logic Apps or Microsoft PowerApps. It comes with the same functionality as the SharePoint Online product to convert, merge, watermark, secure and OCR files.
