PDF::Writer 1.1.4 released

Hi folks,

I’m happy to announce we have our first PDF::Writer maintenance
release ready.
This includes a number of bug fixes; some of the interesting ones

  • Better memory footprint for PDF::SimpleTable
  • Fixed an error with BMP images in ImageInfo#measure_BMP
  • Temporary removal of encryption functionality, as it seems to have
    numerous issues
  • Resolved an issue with ordering of column names in
  • Resolved an issue with shading in PDF::SimpleTable
  • Applied a patch to allow toggling visible column separators in
  • Partially fixed issues with page numbering

== Get it

gem install pdf-writer -y

relevant info, including mailing list and subversion info on our Trac:


Please feel free to use the mailing list to bring up any issues with
PDF::Writer you’d like. We know it is slow, so please come with
suggestions in the form of patches if that’s your complaint. :slight_smile:

== Acknowledgments

Virtually all of these fixes came from either Austin or the community,
so aside from janitorial work I’ve done so far, they deserve all the

Special thanks goes to Eric Budd, Fabio Aquotte, and Alexander Lang
for patches. Hopefully late thanks are better than none at all :slight_smile:

== Note

We still haven’t killed all outstanding issues with PDF::Writer. We
plan to have a 1.1.5 release out reasonably soon with some more fixes.
Until then, hopefully this will tighten things up a bit.



Great stuff Greg, I’m very pleased to see this project taken over
again and look forward to seeing what comes of it. Good luck!
