Release date: Oct 25, 2023

pdfHTML is an iText Core add-on for Java and .NET to create PDF from HTML/XML (and associated CSS).

In this release, we’ve continued our work on pdfHTML’s advanced multicolumn support by supporting the CSS break-inside, break-after, and break-before properties for column-count.

There’s a significant improvement in the font selection algorithm for font families with several width classes, as pdfHTML will now consider all font names within a family, and choosing the best matching one.

Another addition to our flex container support is the support for vertical flex-direction pagination. For example, if you want to expand a flex container onto different pages if the content will not fit on a single page.

In other news, pdfHTML will now support SVG tags when using HtmlConverter#convertToElements, and there’s a fix for the incorrect vertical alignment of inline-block elements in table cells.
