PDF/D

While it is our most obvious project, it is not the only area we are currently working on. The PDF/D specification is still very much a work-in-progress but you can read more about our ideas here: PDF/D Overview

PDF to PDF/D Converter

The PDF/D Consortium intends to collaborate on a shared source PDF to PDF/D converter (.NET C#) for consortium members .

Compliance Report Format

The PDF/D Consortium has published an open reporting format for PDF compliance checking products so that results can be easily compared.

PDF Compliance Tests

Currently the PDF/D Consortium is working on a set of negative PDF ISO-32000-1 compliance tests in the same style as the Isartor PDF/A tests.

PDF/A Compliance Tests

One area of weakness in all of today's PDF/A validators is thorough XMP metadata validation. The PDF/D Consortium is attempting to help address this.

PDF/D Compliance Tests

Once PDF/D becomes more well defined, the PDF/D Consortium will create a set of compliance tests for PDF/D too.


About PDF/D   

What is PDF/D?

PDF/D is "Document PDF": no Flash, no audio, no JavaScript, no 3D, just documents with an emphasis on internationalization and support of structured documents. It is a pragmatic subset of the PDF specification with stricter constraints.

Philosophy

PostScript and the original PDF specification were not created by committees. Linux Kernel development is not democratic. Neither is PDF/D.
