Release iText 7.1.2

iText 7.1.2 is the second maintenance release for iText 7 Core/Community. We're also updating pdfHTML to 2.0.2, pdfSweep to 2.0.1, our License Key Library and Volume License Key Library to 3.0.2.

Some more good news!
We're also releasing support for SVG files. SVG is an image format that is based on vectors, which allows SVG files to be scaled without any rendering artifacts. Note: this first release of our SVG support is experimental, the API will be subject to change until we release the next version. This allows us some additional freedom in fixing bugs and improving the interface.

The SVG module is part of iText 7.1 Community and available on Maven and Nuget. For an overview of what is supported in this SVG release, please consult: our public wiki.
