CapyPDF 0.10.0 is out

Perhaps the most interesting feature is that this new version reduces the number of external dependencies by almost 15%. In other words the number of deps went from 7 to 6.

Other features include:

  • L*a*b* color support in paint operations
  • Reworked raster image APIs
  • Kerned text support
  • Support for all PDF/X versions, not just 3
  • Better outline support

Sadly you can't actually buy them anywhere, they can only be obtained by meeting me in person and asking for one.
