Our PDF engine has been updated, it's now on version 1.8.1.
Synopse PDF engine is an Open Source PDF document creation library for Delphi, embedded in one unit. It's used in the 1.7 version of SQLite3 framework, for creating PDF files from reports.
Among its features, you can use a true TCanvas to create the PDF, and embed True Type fonts subsets. Of course, it's Unicode ready, and licensed under a MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license.
The new version of our Open Source SynGdiPlus unit
does provide a lot of new features:
- dynamic linking (your program runs even on Windows 98/2000), without the gdiplus.dll library
- use version 1.1 of GDI+ if available on your system (under Vista/Seven or the one embedded since Office 2003)
- can convert from a TMetaFile (i.e. emf) into a GDI+ metafile (i.e. emf+)
- can draw TMetaFiles into any canvas, with GDI+ anti-aliasing!

The Fast JPEG decoder using SSE/SSE2 library file has been updated, and is now in version 1.1, released under a MPL/GPL/LGPL tri-license.
This LGPL-distributed unit allows very fast JPEG image decoding, using SSE/SSE2 pure assembly code. It is much faster than the standard jpeg.pas unit.
It's based on the great Dr. Manhattan's source code, from http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpegdec
