Version 0.7.5 of the wxCode component wxPdfDocument is available for download.

wxPdfDocument allows wxWidgets applications to generate PDF documents. The code is a port of FPDF - a free PHP class for generating PDF files - to C++ using the wxWidgets library. Several add-on PHP scripts found on the FPDF web site are incorporated into wxPdfDocument. Embedding of PNG, JPEG, GIF and WMF images is supported. In addition to the 14 standard Adobe fonts it is possible to use other Type1 or TrueType fonts - with or without embedding them into the generated document. In Unicode build CJK fonts are supported, too. Graphics primitives allow the creation of simple drawings.

New or enhanced in version 0.7.5:

- tables in simple XML markup spanning more than a page,
- internal links in simple XML markup,
- alpha transparency,
- image masks,
- internal templates,
- polygon and shape clipping,
- printing text along a path,
- extended support for fill gradients (API changed!),
- internal color management reworked.

Several samples were updated and two added to demonstrate the new capabilities. The Doxygen generated documentation is available online and also included in the file release.

As always feedback is welcome.

Enjoy. :-)
