Release date: April 14, 2021

We continue to improve pdfOptimizer, our newest iText 7 add-on designed to reduce the file size of your PDFs using compression and proprietary optimization strategies to achieve best-in-class performance.

This second release introduces a new optimization strategy, the so-called subsetting of fonts. In a nutshell, it gives pdfOptimizer the possibility to remove unused symbols from the fonts embedded in PDF files, so the size of documents with small amounts of text can be significantly reduced.

If you wish to get more detail about how this works, please see the attached example

Note: You will require an iText 7 Core license, a pdfOptimizer license, and version 3.1.4 of the license key library.
