Big Faceless Organization (BFO) has enhanced their Big Faceless PDF Library
including heavily reworked font handling, providing enhanced performance to text extraction and PDF rendering in those slightly out of the ordinary documents.
Other font-related changes will benefit users in China, Japan and Korea, where the improved support for non-Unicode encodings UCS2 or UTF16 will make legacy documents a little easier to deal with.
The upgrade will also benefit users in Eastern Europe – where improvements to the standard font classes mean it's now possible to display Polish, Czech, Romanian, Hungarian and other ISO-8859-2 languages without embedding a font, resulting in smaller PDFs.
