In addition to releasing new versions of the on-premise editions of our popular PDF Converter for SharePoint and PDF Converter Services (for C#, Java, PHP), our team has been working hard on a new PDF Converter for SharePoint Online release.

The latest release, version 9.10, was rolled out last weekend and will have reached all our customers by the time you read this. As our servers deal with an ever increasing number of customers we have made considerable improvements in the area of scalability and long running operations.

Although I am sure it will make everyone sleep better at night, scalability and reliability is no fun from an end-user perspective. However, what is fun - within reason - is our new facility to convert SharePoint Online pages (List Items, Wiki pages and other SharePoint Online URLs) to PDF. Not only from the SharePoint Online user interface, but also via SharePoint Designer Workflows, Microsoft Flow and our REST based API.

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 8.3. If you are an existing customer, or installed a trial version before mid-October 2017, then we recommend installing the latest workflow actions for the best possible experience. 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 merge, split, watermark, secure, OCR and convert 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 .
