Changes

  • Rendering performance enhancement for PDF's with transparency (10x to 90x on files with many small transparency regions/groups).
  • Bug fixes and improvements, particularly in the area DeviceN (spot color) handling and the PDF interpreter.
  • The pdfwrite device can now create PDF/X-3 compliant documents using the lib/PDFX_def.ps prefix approach
  • Beta version level 2 Postscript output device, ps2write, which generates high-level PostScript including text and images and graphics.

Pdf converters in the form of printer drivers can convert documents quickly. Ghostscript is such a convertor but comes in basic, raw form, which means no great looking interface.

The program converts any document into a pdf file. However you must enter the exact command lines in the prompt screen. If you feel comfortable enough with it, Ghostscript can become your converter of choice.
