Version 2.4.0.0

Changes in this release:

Type Tool Description
Enhancement Form Sample New tool: generates a print job (PCL5 or PCL6) which should cause the target printer to print a specified number of pages of (preset) variable data, using the contents of one or two nominated files as PCL5 macros or PCL6 user-defined streams (as appropriate) to be added to the front and/or rear faces of each sheet.

The PCL5 typeface identifier (4010) associated with the standard CGTimes font was incorrect; the correct value is 4101.
Enhancement Make Overlay New tool: generates a PCL5 macro or PCL6 user-defined stream (as appropriate) from a donor print file, by modifying the contents of the file, removing or modifying elements which are not compatible with use within a macro or user-defined stream.
Enhancement Print Languages Add some of the common 'base' typeface identifiers (e.g. 3 = Courier) to the list shown in the Fonts table.

Enhancement PRN File Analyse Minor improvements to the reporting of invalid or incorrectly terminated PCL parameterised escape sequences.
Error clearance PRN File Analyse The tool lost synchronisation and reported invalid PCL XL tags if an Attribute Definer byte and the following Attribute tag byte straddled a 'read block' boundary.
Error clearance PRN File Analyse If the file to be analysed ended with one or more HP-GL/2 commands, but the last command was not terminated by a ; (semi-colon) character, the last command was not interpreted correctly.
Error clearance Soft Font Generate The application generated a font with an invalid header if glyph zero in the donor TrueType font was empty (i.e. defined no contours).
Error clearance Soft Font Generate The application crashed if 'Save Log' was requested for a font which was not 'installed'.
