BFO releases Java PDF Library 2.20.2

The Version 2.20.2 release contains fixes for a memory leak that would impact anyone loading linearized documents into the PDF viewer from a URL, and a number of other fairly specific fixes for documents our customers have sent us.

It also has a fix for an unusual issue with PDF417 barcodes, where the specification appears to have changed in an incompatible way between two editions. There's more on this in our blog, and if you're generating PDF417 barcodes that include non-ASCII characters with our software this is required reading. For most customers however, we hope this will be a fairly uneventful point release.

For more information please see the changelog.
