Qoppa Software is happy to announce the availability of version v2016R1 for its suite of Java PDF library and Swing PDF component products.

This new version delivers improved up-sampling of images, support for composite blend modes on screen and many rendering, fonts, annotations and form fields improvements. Many small tasks and improvements were implemented this version, enhancing the overall reliability and robustness of Qoppa’s PDF parsing, rendering and manipulating engine.

The user experience in Qoppa’s PDF Swing Components was enhanced with a Touch Mode allowing to easily read, navigate and annotate PDF documents with the touch of a finger on devices with touch-enabled screens. Touch screen laptops and PCS, such as Microsoft Surface Pro or Dell Inspiron, are being used more and more by professionals in all industries, in the office or on the go.

This release was also the time for Qoppa Software to switch to compiling our library products with Java 1.6 and finally drop support for Java 1.4.2. The use of Java Generics allows Qoppa’s public API to be more precise and lessens the chances for our customers to encounter class cast exceptions at run-time.
