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.

This new release – version 9.9 already -  was rolled out a few weeks ago and has reached all our customers by the time you read this. In addition to making some improvements in the areas of copying metadata and real-time watermarking, we have also added support for Microsoft Flow (inc PowerApps and Logic Apps), a new REST based API that makes it easy to integrate our Online software in your own JavaScript, C#, PHP, Java, Python and Ruby code, and key changes have been made to the way our workflow actions deal with (very) long running operations.

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 8.2.

For more details see :

If you are an existing customer, or installed a trial version before May 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 .
