PDFpen and PDFpenPro 6.3.2

Send Article to a Friend

Paving the way for a smooth transition to OS X 10.10 Yosemite, Smile has released version 6.3.2 of PDFpen and PDFpenPro with fixes for a potential crash that resulted from Yosemite’s Unicode decoding and a code signing issue that caused validation problems on both Yosemite and the upcoming 10.9.5 Mavericks. The update also provides a fix for documents that can’t be opened due to an issue with date string handling and squashes a bug that caused page links to be discarded during a save. Note that the Mac App Store editions of PDFpen and PDFpenPro still lag behind at version 6.3.1 as of this writing. ($59.95/$99.95 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free updates, 52.0/52.8 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
