Every once in a while you need to pause and look back. Stop adding endless new functionality and address some of the lesser exciting issues that have been accumulating over time. Bug fixes that only affect a very small number of operations or happen under an extremely rare combination of circumstances. Issues that no one has really complained about, but we feel need fixing.

In other words, a service release, which is what we are announcing today. A brand new release of the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint, version 10.1.1, that adds almost no new functionality, but fixes a number of issues that may be important depending on your use case. When you run a product at scale, like we do in the Muhimbi PDF Online cloud service, even issues that happen in fewer than 0.01% of the operations, add up.

For those not familiar with the product, the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows users to merge, split, watermark, secure, OCR and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF as well as other formats from within SharePoint using a friendly user interface, workflows or a web service call, without the need to install any client-side software or Adobe Acrobat. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, Nintex Workflow, K2 blackpearl, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on SharePoint 2007-2019 & SharePoint Online and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. This ‘on-premise’ version of the PDF Converter requires software to be installed on the SharePoint server. Please note that if you have no server access, there is always the option to deploy our SharePoint Online App to on-premise versions of SharePoint 2013, 2016 and 2019. For details see this blog post .
