i-net PDFC


  • Redis support as cloud persistence backend was removed. If you use it then migrate to MongoDD before you update

i-net PDFC Server

New Features / Improvements

  • Data protection:
    • New option to removed all unnamed comparisons as soon as all viewers are disconnected
    • It is possible to configure the time after which inactive users will be disconnected so that the unnamed comparisons of inactive users will be removed
    • New Permission added to define whether users are allowed to create/modify/run comparisons. Without this permission the user can only view published comparisons
    • New publishing mode added to publish comparisons only temporarily
  • Usage of the Web-API for micro services is now available out of the box
  • Drastically reduced size of exported PDFs in case there are re-used images in the compared files
  • The “External visible URL” being used for the EHLO command when connecting to an SMTP server
  • PDF export optimized to reduce average size of the result by 10 to 50%

i-net PDFC Runtime / Parser / Comparison

Changed Behavior

  • Automatic header and footer detection for documents with large line spacing improved
  • Strict line comparison no longer detects a line size change if the size and orientation of the line is vastly different. Instead a replace or removed/new will be displayed as this is more likely

New Features / Improvements

  • Hyphen detection in multi column layouts improved
  • Strict comparison for curves takes into account the overall offset of the shape when checking the curve points
  • Word boundary detection improved when kerning is simulated by a negative text chunk offset
  • Boundary detection for inserted/removed sentences and paragraphs improved
  • Word detection in case of stacked text fragments improved
  • Plugin to compare PDF files in the order of the document internal structure is available on-demand. This may produce better results for complex documents from the same generator application

Fixed Bugs

  • Rare false positives occurred for edges of bordering similar shapes, in case the shapes were slightly moved in one of the documents
  • Kerning handling in RTL bidirectional context
  • The markup for an underline difference was too long
  • Exception due to inconsistent path definitions in PDF files
  • Incorrect unicode characters in case the character names in the font are inconsistent
  • IndexOutOfBoundsException occurred in comparison core algorithm
  • Incorrect unicode characters occurred in case the character names in the font are inconsistent
  • Differences like “Font Style was changed from bold to plain” occurred although the font style was not changed
  • Memory optimization for PDF files with a lot of shapes
  • Rare false positives occurred around punctuation

i-net PDFC Desktop Application

Fixed Bugs

  • Difference Marker not displayed because of NullPointerException

Task Planner

New Features / Improvements

  • It is now supported to set “Delete previous results after X days” for a file action. With this property it is possible for example to delete old backups
