The Muhimbi PDF Converter Online is constantly being improved and extended. Similar to many other online services, when a new version is rolled out there is nothing to do for our users. New functionality just shows up, existing functionality continues to work as expected.

Since our previous formal announcement, we have added some interesting new facilities, and fixed / improved existing logic.

The full list of changes can be found further down, but the key highlights for versions 9.14.1 are as follows:

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 10.1.1.

A simple 'Confidential' watermark applied to MS-Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF

For those not familiar with the product, the Muhimbi PDF Converter Online is a lightweight subscription based solution that allows users to convert merge, split, watermark, secure, and OCR 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. A REST based API as well as Power Automate (Flow), Azure LogicApps and Microsoft Power Apps integration is included in the service. More details can be found on the product page.  An on-premise version for SharePoint 2007-2019 is available separately.
