Release Notes -- Apache PDFBox -- Version 1.7.1


The Apache PDFBox library is an open source Java tool for working with PDF 

This is an incremental bugfix release based on the earlier 1.7.0 release.

This version also includes the new PDF/A preflight module. Due to some
unfinished refactoring we decided to release them source only. Uncomment the
commented entries in the reactor pom to build your own jars.

For more details on all fixes and improvements included in this release, please
