Release date: April 11, 2022

pdfCalligraph is our iText 7 add-on which provides advanced typography support when creating PDF documents, enabling you to expand your document workflow with accurate rendering for global languages and writing systems.

In this 3.0.1 release we have made improvements to the support for Urdu (used in Pakistan and India), particularly when dealing with line breaks.

Note: Don't forget that aside from being a very useful add-on to iText 7 Core by itself, you can also use pdfCalligraph in combination with pdfHTML (and it's part of iText DITO as well!)
