Subject RE: PDFBox 2.1.0
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2016 10:31:57 GMT
Most adaptation work were related to API changes, listed in
http://pdfbox.apache.org/2.0/migration.html 

There were also many changes related to FontBox , as we used it for font
validation according to PDF/A-2 & 3, ex. validation of CIDSet consistency
(PDFBOX-2648 also about it).  It consumed the most time in adaptation work
as I had to again reread various font specifications to understand whether I
should report to JIRA about lost (i.e. mainly hidden) features in v2.0, or
it is my code which should be changed :).

For visual signatures we used the API via PDVisibleSigProperties. We do not
generate from text, but add graphic image in specified position for
signature visualization. Therefore there could be little input from me.

We implemented signature time-stamping using Document Time Stamp defined in
PAdES (PDFBOX-1848 about it as well) and multiple file signing using with
one signing transaction (PDFBOX-3065 about it as well). Probably here I
could share my experience a bit.

With best regards,
Petras Petkus

I would be very interested to understand which changes you had to do - maybe
some of that could be integrated in PDFBox. One thing I'll be working on for
2.1 is appearance generation for form fields which will also include
signature fields.
