Release Notes:

We're pleased to announce iText 7.1.9, our latest (and last of 2019! ??) quarterly release. For this release, we've carried out some essential housekeeping to make sure that we maintain our high code quality standards, and great API documentation.

We also had time to introduce some more cool features, such as enhanced text extraction, better left-to-right (LTR) text direction when pdfCalligraph is used together with pdfHTML, improved SVG support and a bunch of XFA improvements (XFA is dead, long live XFA!). pdf2Data also has some pretty cool nuggets, such as improved table extraction strategies and the ability to seamlessly extract data from protected documents.

Have fun!!
