Release Notes -- Apache PDFBox -- Version 1.7.0


The Apache PDFBox library is an open source Java tool for working with PDF 

This is an incremental feature release based on the earlier 1.x releases.
This release contains many improvements and fixes especially related to
performance, resource usage and rendering. The most significant
new feature is the new non sequential parser.

This version also includes the new PDF/A preflight module. Due to some unfinished
refactoring we decided to release them source only. Uncomment the commented entries
in the reactor pom to build your own jars.

For more details on these changes and all the other fixes and improvements
included in this release, please refer to the following issues on the
PDFBox issue tracker at https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX.
