Licensing Modifications

To make the choice between our different products easier for you, we did the following changes in our GdPicture.NET Editions:

  • the PDF bookmark navigation control is now included in the GdPicture.NET Document Viewer SDK Edition.
  • GdPicture.NET TWAIN and TWAIN Pro Editions merged to a single TWAIN Edition. The new GdPicture.NET TWAIN Edition includes all features of the previous TWAIN and TWAIN Pro Editions.

You can see these changes in our Comparison Matrix.

Product Selector

In addition to our Comparison Matrix we created a Product Selector The Product Selector helps you determine the toolkits that match your needs.
In other words with the Product Selector you get the right configuration (the GdPicture.NET Edition and the Plugin(s) you need) and the right price in a few clicks!

That’s all for now!
