It’s been a little while since I posted about AlivePDF. I just came back from Max in Los Angeles, and it is amazing to see how many people are using AlivePDF and love the library, seriously this is really cool I am sorry for the lack of updates recently, I have been working on side [...]
Murray Hopkins just started a series of nice tutorials about printing from AIR with AlivePDF! Make sure to check his tutorials! Great job Murray!
I just noticed that Browserlab (browserlab.adobe.com) does not integrate PDF export. Hey, Browserlab team Why not using AlivePDF with a few lines of code with the addImageStream API to generate a nice PDF with a screenshot on each page, that users could send to their clients ?
AlivePDF 0.1.5 RC is finally there and has a lot of new features. As you may have seen, font embedding is now supported and a lot of new things, as a result a lot of new API’s have been introduced. Hopefully the documentation is now updated. To get started with those API’s here is a [...]
I am happy to announce that AlivePDF 0.1.5 is getting better and better.

In September, Peldi the creator of this great tool asked if it was possible to add internal link support and fix the outlines feature in AlivePDF in order to add PDF export to Mockups. This was added and Mockups, and there [...]
Just a very quick note to let you know that the forthcoming Flash Player 10.1 is fixing the writeMultiByte on Linux. We will keep the fix in AlivePDF to ensure backward compatibility with previous players, but it’s just good news to see this bug fixed if you have different projects relying on this method
Here is a great news for AlivePDF, I am currently considering using Alchemy to handle all the fonts parsing (TrueType/OpenType) through a c lib called TTF2PT1. This is the cool thing with Alchemy, any c or c++ lib can be compiled to AVM2 bytecode and used in the Flash Player. If you know the TTF2PT1 [...]
