The pdfTeX team is happy to an­nounce the re­lease of a new sta­ble ver­sion: =========================================================================== pdfTeX 1.40.6 =========================================================================== This is the an­nounce­ment of pdfTeX 1.40.6, an ex­tended ver­sion of TeX that can cre­ate PDF di­rectly from TeX source files and en­hance the re­sult of TeX type­set­ting with the help of PDF. =========================================================================== Main changes of pdfTeX 1.40.6 =========================================================================== - Bug­fixes: - in­clu­sion of en­crypted PDFs was bro­ken (861) - PDFs > 2GiB (LFS) would be bro­ken, even on 64-bit sys­tems. Now the ba­sic sup­port for LFS is there, you only need to sup­ply the right com­piler flags (this is not yet done au­to­mat­i­cally). See build.sh for hints on com­pil­ing. - Page groups in pdfs (see the dis­cus­sion in the notes vor v1.10a) are now han­dled cor­rectly (741) - When in­clud­ing trans­par­ent PNGs pdf­tex now au­to­mat­i­cally adds a Page Group (896) - bro­ken map files would lead to core dumps - un­usual TrueType fonts would lead to an as­ser­tion er­ror (874) - the null ob­ject in the ob­ject ta­ble was never ini­tial­ized - in­cluded PDFs with /PieceInfo lost their /LastMod­i­fied date - an empty col­orstack crashed pdf­tex (897) - pdfTeX uses libpng 1.2.24 - pdfTeX uses xpdf 3.02pl2 For com­plete re­lease notes see http://www.pdf­tex.org/NEWS =========================================================================== Le­gal no­tice / li­cense =========================================================================== pdfTeX is copy­right (c) 1996-2008 Han The Thanh, <thanh at pdf­tex.org> pdfTeX is free soft­ware; you can re­dis­tribute it and/or mod­ify it un­der the terms of the GNU Gen­eral Public Li­cense as pub­lished by the Free Soft­ware Foun­da­tion; ei­ther ver­sion 2 of the Li­cense, or (at your op­tion) any later ver­sion. For a com­plete README (with a full dis­cus­sion of the li­cense) please look at http://www.pdf­tex.org/README =========================================================================== The files / in­stal­la­tion =========================================================================== You should first try to get a new ver­sion of pdfTeX through your dis­tri­bu­tion. If you want to com­pile it your­self, have a look at http://www.pdf­tex.org -- there you can find links to the pdfTeX sources on CTAN. And some use­ful doc­u­men­ta­tion. =========================================================================== Mail­ing lists / web pages: =========================================================================== Mail­ing list: http://tug.org/mail­man/listinfo/pdf­tex Re­lated web pages: http://www.pdf­tex.org http://sarovar.org/projects/pdf­tex/ http://foundry.su­p­elec.fr/scm/?group_id=23 http://www.tug.org/tex-live/ http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/tex­faq2html?in­tro­duc­tion=yes http://www.dante.de/ http://tug.org/ http://www.pragma-ade.com/ Have fun!
