Life after PREFORMA, the future of veraPDF

| Free

19th Sep 2017 : 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The PREFORMA project that commissioned and funded the development of veraPDF draws to an end this year. Recent activity has been focused on PREFORMA acceptance testing, formalising the decisions of the PDF Association’s Technical Working Group and fixing issues reported by the community. In this webinar, we’ll be presenting the results of recent development and presenting our plans for life after PREFORMA. Specifically, we’ll be covering:

  • Improvements to the veraPDF policy checker aimed to make it easier for users to create custom policies.
  • Real world policies produced by the veraPDF consortium for PREFORMA acceptance testing.
  • Common validation issues, particularly around PDF/A’s Unicode requirements.
  • Our plans for the future, including feature reporting for PDF 2.0 and support arrangements for the veraPDF project.
