The 2.2 release of iText DITO is out! Discover its new features and capabilities.

We are excited to announce the general availability of iText DITO 2.2. This latest release of iText's high-convenience PDF document generator now uses the same licensing mechanism that was introduced with the release of iText 7.2. With the release of iText DITO 2.2 we have changed our containers to be run as a non-root user, allowing you to set users instead of running containers as ROOT; additionally, the 2.2 release of iText DITO now allows users to deploy the DITO Template Manager application to a Kubernetes environment!
