    Release Notes: This release supports row sorting of the resulting page lists. Templates for the projects can be used on a project base. Result pages can contain navigation elements, so browsing independent from the tree menu is possible. Different design samples are included in the package. An installer for Windows is available, including Perl and all other dependencies. There are other new features.

      Release Notes: pdfx 3.02 is included in the Windows packages, which processes a wider range of PDF files than v3.0. This release supports ActiveState Perl, supports or includes ImageMagick 6.5.7-7, alternatively uses the Perl module HTML::ExtractContent when HTML::Strip is not available for the current Perl version (this is the case with ActiveState Perl V 10), and has support for MP3 files. A bug has been fixed where the Text of AddDescription entries in .htaccess files for HTML files were ignored.

        Release Notes: On Windows platforms, there was a problem when the directory to scan was not on the same drive as the resources directory. This caused indexing on a foreign drive to fail and has been fixed. When the target directory was not writable, indexed the current directory; this has been fixed. A Perl/Tk GUI interface ( is now included. The GUI allows you to save and restore settings from XML configuration files. Progress information is now shown, unless you use the -q option. The resulting browsable icons and thumbnails are now linked with the document.

          Release Notes: Messages are now generally in English. The "IndexOption SuppressDescription" directive was added into .htaccess to omit the extraction of PDF titles from PDF files, when the title tag is not sensible. The -x option was added, which globally switches off the PDF title extraction. "IndexIgnore" in .htaccess will now work with individual files, and also with wildcards, like in Apache. IndexIgnore and SuppressDescription are now also valid for sub-directories inside the directory where .htaccess is found. The highest directory level is now called "home" and is linked with the welcome.html page.
