Since we started the beta cycle of the new Workflow enabled version of the PDF Converter for SharePoint we have received a lot of positive feedback as well as a number of bug reports.
Feedback has been processed, bugs have been fixed and we are happy to announce the release version with immediate availability.
For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a light weight solution (4MB download) that allows end-users to convert common document types, such as doc, docx, rtf, InfoPath, txt etc, to PDF format from within SharePoint. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on both WSS 3 as well as MOSS and is available in English, German, Dutch and Japanese.
