• New PDF-A and PDF-X Verifiers. Easy to use verification API tests PDF files for PDF-A/X compliancy, providing developers building archiving/pre-press applications with the detailed report.
• Support for 100+ Additional Digital Camera RAW Formats. Developers building imaging applications can rest assured that they’ll support a wide range (200+) of digital camera RAW formats.
• Additional ImageCleanTM Functions. Allows users of imaging applications built using ImageGear to improve the quality of documents with new functions including hole punch removal, line removal, erode, and dilate.
• New Photo Enhancement Effects. Allows users of imaging applications built using ImageGear to add artistic effects to their photos, including Aging, Duotone, Glow, Impressionist and Sketch.
• DWF File Format Support. Provides users with improved CAD interoperability.

“With these ImageGear releases -- together with our new ImageGear for Silverlight toolkit -- we’re providing the developer community with the most advanced, full-featured imaging SDKs available for building applications for users across a diverse range of industries on the full range of platforms, including the ultimate Rich Internet Applications,” said Tom Leone, president, AccuSoft Corporation.
