Version 0.7.6 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 0.7.6:
- the code is now compatible with wxWidgets version 2.6.x and 2.7.1. Prior versions are not compilable with wxWidgets version 2.7.1 due to incompatible changes in the wxWidgets API.
- a few minor enhancements have been made and several bugs have been fixed (like memory leaks)

Attention: The structure of the font definition file has changed, making it necessary to regenerate own font definition files using the utility MakeFont.

As always feedback is welcome.

Enjoy. :-)
