Rich Text landed in SetaPDF

Stamp rich text onto PDFs with the SetaPDF-Stamper component in pure PHPWith the release of SetaPDF 2.41 we are starting to ship some rich-text features that allows you to create styled content by using a subset of HTML and CSS. We've implemented this feature in the SetaPDF-Core component and initially make use of it in the SetaPDF-Stamper component. It will be introduced in other components in the near future as well. E.g. rich-text fields in the SetaPDF-FormFiller or styled signature fields in the SetaPDF-Signer component.

If you want to try things out, feel free to be creative on the new demo of the SetaPDF-Stamper component.

Beside this main feature we also fixed some bugs and did some tweaks in the whole SetaPDF code base.

Check the release notes of the components below.
