Release Notes: You can now add or change a PDF’s bookmarks using update_info. You can now use multi-character input handles. Prior versions were limited to a single character, imposing an arbitrary limitation on the number of input PDFs when using handles. Handles must still be all uppercase ASCII. This release adds a means of referring to PDF pages in reverse order. By prefixing a page number with an r, it counts from the end of the document. For example, r1 is the last page, r2 is the next-to-last page, etc. Other minor changes and fixes have been added.
Release Notes: A bug where the presence of page annotations in some PDFs would cause pdftk to crash was fixed. This bug first emerged when processing a PDF created by FPDF (version 1.52) that contained Web links. A couple of bugs in the dump_data_fields form field reporting were fixed. This feature was also improved so it now reports all possible settings for check box, radio button, list box, and combo box form fields.
Release Notes: The watermarking feature was fixed so that it handles rotated pages (input PDF or background PDF) better. The form field handling when combining PDF pages was fixed. Pdftk now detects duplicate field names and adds name prefixes as needed. stdin support was added for input PDF, FDF, or Info files. A means for users to control the output PDF filenames when using the burst feature was added. The background command-line syntax was changed so that it is an operation instead of an output option. The subset font name prefixes for input PDFs are now shuffled to prevent duplicates.
