Since this post was published, we have released Foxit PDF SDK, the only true multi-platform SDK in the market, available for Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, UWP and Web. It features a single, consistent core API, as well as a built-in viewer and UI for faster development. Learn more.
Foxit SDK are happy to announce the release of Quick PDF Library 14. The 2017 version of the Library includes major improvements to its printing functionality, several enhancements to its management of EMF imports and support for the latest Embarcadero Delphi version, 10.2 Tokyo, among many other new features, bug fixes, and other enhancements.
“At Debenu we still believe in the core principle that brought us to our current position: we can provide real PDF value to the small-to-medium sized business. Quick PDF Library 14 lives up to that standard. I look forward to seeing your thoughts on the new release.” –Karl De Abrew, President at Foxit SDK.

Does this version allow me to extract data field values from XFA (Livecycle) forms using the Delphi VCL ?
I need to be able to read the XFA based form and extract data based on field name or some sort of identifier.
Nic from Foxit here. XFA is only partially supported in Quick PDF Library – we recommend you try the features yourself before purchasing. We are planning on adding full support for it in Foxit PDF SDK however. That’s coming with version 6.0 early next year: https://www.foxitsoftware.com/products/sdk/pdf-sdk/
Could you elaborate a little bit on what the stated GeoPDF support includes? I’m not sure if this is new to version 14, or if version 14 includes any improvements to this feature?
I would like to understand, for example, how to extract positioning information from a PDF file that has been loaded by the library.
There are so many ways that positioning information can be stored in a PDF. It can be attached to the page, or to individual items like images, etc. You can have a look at the functions with “MeasureDict” in the function name. They are all part of the “Measurement and coordinate units” function group: http://www.debenu.com/docs/pdf_library_reference/MeasurementAndCoordinateUnits.php.
