Murray Hopkins just started a series of nice tutorials about printing from AIR with AlivePDF! Make sure to check his tutorials! Great job Murray!
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 [...]
If there is one AIR application that I love, it’s called Mockups from Balsamiq. 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 [...]
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.

I just posted on my blog the session Michael and I did at Adobe Max ’09 in Los Angeles. It contains a section about AlivePDF and other cool stuff, hope you guys will like it.
Just a quick note, to tell you that while flying back from Adobe Max ’09, I added the beginBitmapFill() (Drawing API) method in AlivePDF. Code is very simple, just like the Flash Player native Drawing API : // create the surface var surface:BitmapData = new Star (0,0); // begin filling with the bitmap p.beginBitmapFill( surface [...]

Just get there : http://www.inwayvideo.com/max2009 PhilFlash did a great job doing it, and I really like to see AlivePDF in action ! [...]

As this feature is easy to implement, I have just added it in the latest SVN revision of AlivePDF. Here is a quick explanation of the API, preilly85, this one is for you : // [...]
