Dear Customer,

we are pleased to announce the release of the new version 4.2 

The upgrade is free for all the Customers who bought a standard 4.x license, since 2003. If you previously bought a 3.2 license, obtaining a free upgrade to the 4.0 version at a later time, now you can upgrade it to the 4.2 version by purchasing an upgrade license.

If on your PC the 4.1 version is already installed, you don't need to upgrade your license keys. Simply install the update over the previous version, even without uninstalling it.
If the AutoUpdate system is active, the upgrade will be totally automated and guided, even if you are still using the old 4.0 version.

New features:

  • A new "Personal Edition" License is on sale for private - non commercial - use, at a lowered price.
    The Personal Edition does not have any functional limit when compared to the standard version, but, once registered, the software must be activated on the PC, so an internet connection is required within 30 days from the initial registration.

  • Added the ability to create encrypted (40-bit RC4) and password protected PDF files via GhostScript (a GS upgrade may be required on the client machine: GPL GhostScript 8.15 or newer)
    You can enable/disable permission to: Print document, Modify contents of document, Copy text and graphics from document, Add or modify text annotations.

  • The "Printfil" virtual printer (useful for creating PDF files and capturing the parallel port's output) now can be automatically created with a single mouse click (only on old Windows 9x/ME systems there are still a few little things which have to be completed manually, by following instructions in the manual)

  • In the Printfil's configuration dialog (and the Printfil.ini file) 3 fields has been added: Rows, Cut Rows and Columns. Previously the default values were: 66 , 0 and 0 and could only be changed by the optional CFG file. Settings in the CFG file continues to take precedence to these settings.

  • Added the ability to set each single print job (by the optional CFG file) to ask the end user for the destination printer (Choose), whether to show the Preview or not (Preview), and the number of chars to use for the Auto-Landscape orientation (AutoLand), independently by the Printfil.ini default settings.

  • The Hungarian language has been added. (Some new entries has been added to the localized messages files. If your natural language is not English, you may want to have a look and eventually correct them: Catalan - Czech - Danish - Dutch - English - French - German - Greek - Hebrew - Hungarian - Italian - Macedonian - Polish - Portuguese - Romanian - Russian - Serbian - Slovenian - Spanish - Swedish )

  • In the preview window, on some cases the "zoom factor" menu entry could not work correctly. Fixed.

  • Some other minor improvements and bug fixes.

Our offices will be closed for vacation from 21 Aug till 28 Aug included.
You can purchase your licenses also during the closing period because the ordering system is totally automated.

For any further question, comments or suggestions, do not hesitate do contact us.

Kind regards,

Davide Guolo
