SW: PDFMergeNX Version 1.9.alpha.9

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Herwig Bauernfeind

This is the second publicly announced release of PDFMergeNX, the successor
to PDFMerge/2.

PDFMergeNX is an application to manipulate PDF and PS files in various
ways. Its capabilities go far beyond those of PDFMerge/2. PDFMergeNX
provides a graphical user interface and acts as glue between GhostScript,
XPDF 3.01.pl1 and ePDF (these all must be installed as a prerequisite).

PDFMergeNX is a tool for doing everyday things with PDF documents and
PostScript files. Currently it can be used to

* Merge PDF/PS/TIF/FAX/image files
* Split PDF/PS files into single pages
* Print PDF/PS files
* View PDF/PS files (builtin Mini-PDF/PS-Viewer)
* Compare (text) content of 2 PDF/PS files (using Araxis PMDiff)
* Extract PS files from PDF files
* Flip pages upside down
* Add simple bookmarks
* Add and update PDF metadata such as title, subject, author, keywords
* Rearrange pages
* Load/save listfiles to add sets of PDF/PS files at once
* more features to be added.

What is new/changed/in this release?

Summary: If you had problems to get an earlier version of PDFMergeNX to
work at all, you might want to try this one.

Added: Progress bar for "Add Many" dialogue
Added: Another attempt to make PDFMergeNX more intelligent regarding
the setup of the XPDF components.
Added: Options to choose where to read .xpdfrc from (%HOME% or
%PATH_TO_XPDF% or PDFMergeNX directory).
Changed: Rearranged properties dialogue in a more logical way.
Changed: PDFMergeNX adds a line of comment to .xpdfrc in case it has to
recreate it.
Changed: Rewrote font detection routine
Changed: As JPEG2PS did not work as I had expected I switched to
Disadvantage: It is slower (2 conversions instead of 1).
Advantage: Virtually all kinds of image files are supported now
(officially BMP GIF and PNG were added)
Fixed: Some omissions in the german NLS file.
Fixed: Opening the PDF info window of a PDF/PS files without fonts
crashed PDFmergeNX
Fixed: Now XPDF executables are (almost) always called with the -cfg
parameter pointing
to our .xpdfrc
Fixed: Mark/Unmark now enables/disables the "Merge" button correctly
Fixed: The splitbar still could get into an invisible area making the
container unusable.
Fixed: Creation of local PATH_TO_XPDF did not work

PDFMergeNX is still under heavy development, neither feature set,
documentation nor installation process is complete yet and therefore
feedback of all kinds is appreciated.
