New Versions / PAdES Support / Last Release for PHP 5.2 and 5.32016-02-15

We just released new versions of all SetaPDF components.

This release includes several bug fixes, tweaks and introduces exciting new features such as the support for PAdES conforming signatures in the SetaPDF-Signer component. All release notes can be found below.

We also decided that this release was the last official release that was tested on PHP 5.2 and 5.3. PHP 5.2 is now officially unsupported for more than five years and PHP 5.3 for more than one and a half year. Customers that are forced to use one of these versions are still able to use our components until this release (revision 817) but are advised to update to a recent PHP version as soon as possible. For sure you can always reach us at if you have any problem or question!
