Dear Qt users,
I would like to inform you about my project, PDF4QT. I began this
project in year 2018 as my private project, and now, I think, it is
ready to be released for public beta testing. Long term goal of this
project is to offer full support of PDF 2.0 specification as add-on
library for Qt. I know, that Qt offers its own PDF module, but, it lacks
many functionality. My project offers much more, as optional content
handling, signature verification, encryption support, form filling,
color management, annotations, text to speech, optimalization, sensitive
content redaction, page manipulation, document merging and splitting and
much more. Also, I offer several applications, which use this library,
such as document viewer/editor, or command line tool.
I am aware, that some other projects also implements this functionality,
but they are very often using viral licenses such as GPL/AGPL. I want to
be more benevolent, so PDF4QT project uses LGPL license, version 3, so
it is usable also in commercial applications. I do not want to restrict
people from using my library.
Project can be found at this website:
And public beta release is available here:
I hope you will find my 3-year work useful.
PS. I will be very happy if you can contribute in a form of testing,
advices, opinions... But I also want to keep control of the rights to my
project, so if you want to contribute, Contributor License Agreement
must be signed.
Please do not respond on my email, but if you want to discuss this
software, use following discussion forum:
