Thanks, I will use the trunk then.

I filed an issue (https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-421) regarding
the failed tests.

Oops, the encryption test failures could well be caused by some fixes I did
earlier. Can you file a bug report for that?

The current trunk is in many ways much better than the 0.7.3 release, so if
you in any case need to patch things, I would recommend going with the trunk.

We're currently working towards releasing the trunk as 0.8.0-incubating. See
the pdfbox-dev@ list for the progress.
