Over the past 4 months our engineers have been hard at work on a number of brilliant new facilities resulting in the new 5.2. release of our popular Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint.
The list of new features and improvements is considerable but the main ones are as follows:
- Convert Outlook MSG files to PDF including all attachments.
- Splitting PDF Files using SharePoint workflows.
- PDF/A Post processing for all supported file formats.
- Support for the 64 bit version of Office 2010
For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to watermark, merge, split, secure and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF format 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, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on WSS 3, MOSS as well as SharePoint 2010 and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. For detailed information check out the product page .
